New York Simon and Schuster, c1994.


Emigrating from Bohemia to Black Hawk, Nebraska, with her family, Antonia finds no white-framed farmhouse or snug barn. Instead, the cultured Shimerda family finds itself huddled into a primitive sod house buffeted by the ceaselessly, blowing winds of the Midwest prairie. For her childhood friend Jim Burden, Antonia comes to embody the elemental spirit of this frontier, despite the events that nearly destroy her family and leave her seduced and abandoned. But passionate, beautiful, and strong enouth to work the fields alongside the men, Antonio survives without compromising the rich, deep power of her nature. And Willa Cather's lush descriptions of the rolling Nebraska grasslands interweave with the warmly human tale of a woman coming of age in the early days of the century to become an epic tale and a chronicle of America's past.
