The Best Days Are First To Flee

The stories of an orphaned boy from Virginia, Jim Burden, who lives with his grandparents and Antonia Shimerda, the elder daughter in a family of Bohemian immigrants. Each child travels west to partake in the pioneer life in Nebraska at the end of the 19th century. Both families labor to farm the harsh, but fertile land of the American prairie. Along with Cather’s other books O Pioneers! and The Song of the Lark, My Antonia is considered part of her “Prairie Trilogy.”

About the Author

Willa Cather stands as an enduring figure in American literature, celebrated for her profound portrayals of the human spirit and the landscapes that shaped it. Born in Back Creek Valley, Virginia, she later moved to Red Cloud, Nebraska, an experience that would significantly influence her writing. Cather's literary journey began as a journalist, but it was her novels that truly marked her legacy. Her early works, such as O Pioneers! and My Ántonia, captured the challenges and triumphs of immigrants and pioneers on the Great Plains, while her later novels like Death Comes for the Archbishop and A Lost Lady delved into complex themes of spirituality, cultural clashes, and the passage of time.
