Synopsis:
No romantic novel ever written in America, by man or woman, is one half so beautiful as My Antonia. --H.L. Mencken

Review:
'She is undoubtedly one of the twentieth century's greatest American writers' OBSERVER *'Her voice, laconical and richly sensuous, sings out with a note of unequivocal love for the people she is setting down on the page' MARINA WARNER *'Cather makes a world which is burningly alive, sometimes lovely, often tragic' HELEN DUNMORE

Book Description:
In this powerful and astonishing novel, Willa Cather created one of the most winning yet thoroughly convincing heroines in American fiction.
