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.”

First published in 1918, this edition is derived from the original book with 8 black & white illustrations by W. T. Benda. As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.
