Title: My Antonia
Author: Willa Cather
Genre: Classic, set in late 19th century Nebraska
Pages: 266
Rating (out of 5 stars): *****
Reviewed by: Jenn and Ben
Description: My Antonia tells the story of a Bohemian immigrant family in the late 19th century. It catalogues the joys and struggles of early western farm life, the rich stories of immigrants, and the simplicity of growing up in an empty land. The characters are vivid and real, and they have much to teach the reader.
Thoughts: We both absolutely loved this book. More than anything, it was just a rich and nourishing book to read. Cather's depictions of life on the plains are so stunning, you can almost smell the dirt, and you feel you have met the characters somewhere before. It says a lot about how to be a good, strong person who lives and loves life.
Disclaimer: There was nothing offensive about this book.
