Item Description...
My Antonia chronicles the life of Antonia, a Bohemian immigrant woman, as seen through the eyes of Jim, the man unable to forget her. Jim, now a successful New York lawyer, recollects his upbringing on a Nebraska farm. Even after twenty years, Antonia continues to live a romantic life in his imagination. When he returns to Nebraska, he finds Antonia has lived a battered life. Although the man to whom she dedicated her life abandons her, she remains strong and full of courage.

More About David Colacci Willa Cather

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Wila Cather was probably born in Virginia in 1873, although her parents did not register the date, and it is probably incorrectly given on her tombstone. Because she is so famous for her Nebraska novels, many people assume she was born there, but Wila Cather was about nine years old when her family moved to a small Nebraska frontier town called Red Cloud that was populated by immigrant Swedes, Bohemians, Germans, Poles, Czechs, and Russians. The oldest of seven children, she was educated at home, studied with a Latin neighbor, and read the English classics in the evening. By the time she went to the University of Nebraska in 1891-where she began by wearing boy's clothes and cut her hair close to her head-she had decided to be a writer.

After graduation she worked for a Lincoln, Nebraska, newspaper, then moved to Pittsburgh and finally to New York City. There she joined McClure's magazine, a popular muckraking periodical that encouraged the writing of new young authors. After meeting the author Sarah Orne Jewett, she decided to quit journalism and devote herself full time to fiction. Her first novel, Alexander's Bridge, appeared in serial form in McClure's in 1912. But her place in American literature was established with her first Nebraska novel, O Pioneers!, published in 1913, which was followed by her most famous pioneer novel, My Antonia, in 1918. In 1922 she won the Pulitzer Prize for one of her lesser-known books. One of Ours. Death Comes for the Archbishop (1927), her masterpiece, and Shadows on the Rock (1931) also celebrated the pioneer spirit, but in the Southwest and French Canada. Her other novels include The Song of the Lark (1915), The Professor's House (1925), My Mortal Enemy (1926), and Lucy Gayheart (1935). Wila Cather died in 1947.

Willa Cather lived in the state of Nebraska. Willa Cather was born in 1873 and died in 1947.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Finally a good American Novel.   Dec 1, 2008
I read this book because it's on the Modern Library's Top 100 List. This book is about a young boy sent to live with his Grandparents in Nebraska, and his life growing up there. It sounds boring, but it really is a facinating novel. The characters are all very strong-natured and interesting, and in the end everyone pretty much ends up successful in living the ways they want to live. I would definitely recommend it as one of the greatest novels of the 20th century.
Beautiful writing, but the lack of plot means it's not for everyone  Oct 25, 2008
I loved this story of a time and place that is gone. It's elegiac and fond, and beautifully written. Characters are sketched out sparsely but intact, and her phrasing made me gasp with pleasure at times.

But it has no plot. I cringe to think that children might be forced to read this. People who want to learn how to write should read this - Willa Cather writes beautifully. People who like character sketches or prose that captures a time and place unknown to them will like this. Things happen, as they do in a life. But not everything that happens is interesting (as in life.)
Enduring Story  Sep 26, 2008
My parents had an old copy of this book lying around and I picked it up and starting reading it over winter break one year. It drew me in. I don't know why, since it wasn't particularly warm or filled with likeable characters or funny or scary or any of the things that normally draw me in. It was just interesting - and different. It seemed so real - you could feel the harsh winters. And all these years, the story, the characters have stayed with me - for me, a sure sign of a great book.
Beautiful new edition  Sep 2, 2008
The edition of this book that has a cover painting of Antonia in a white dress (ISBN 1438242905) has a fresh new design, inside and out. It's also a substantial size (6"x9") and printed on high-quality paper, unlike the small mass-market editions printed on newsprint. A great bargain at this low price!
Only read it if you have to for school!  Aug 28, 2008
Required reading for my kids their junior year. My kids love to read everything they can get their hands on. This was pure torture! Had to look up summaries online to help get the ideas flowing on what to write about after reading this. Books like this are enough to make kids not want to read any more!
