Audio Book - My Àntonia


"I was something that lay under the sun and felt it, like the pumpkins, and I did not want to be anything more. I was entirely happy. Perhaps we fell like that when we die and become a part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge."- My Àntonia

After the death of his parents, Jim Burden is sent to live with his grandparents on the Nebraska plains. By chance, on that same train is Àntonia, a bright-eyes girl who will become his neighbor and lifelong friend. Although her family has a new life farming and must work hard just to survive, Àntonia retains her natural pride and free spirit. As a "hired girl" in town, Àntonia blossoms in the new freedom that town life offers. Willa Cather paints a rich picture of life on the prairie at the beginning of the twentieth century and depicts some of the many cultures that came to compose the United States.
