“No romantic novel ever written in America . . . is one half so beautiful as My ��ntonia.” -H. L. Mencken

Widely recognized as Willa Cather’s greatest novel, My ��ntonia is a soulful and rich portrait of a pioneer woman’s simple yet heroic life. The spirited daughter of Bohemian immigrants, ��ntonia must adapt to a hard existence on the desolate prairies of the Midwest. Enduring childhood poverty, teenage seduction, and family tragedy, she eventually becomes a wife and mother on a Nebraska farm. A fictional record of how women helped forge the communities that formed a nation, My ��ntonia is also a hauntingly eloquent celebration of the strength, courage, and spirit of America’s early pioneers.
