WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Willa Cather paints her pioneer country in wistful sepia prose that has become an enchanting American classic. The childhood memories of narrator Jim Burden in Blackhawk, Nebraska are woven together with the struggles of his beloved neighbor, a newly-arrived immigrant girl from Bohemia, Ántonia Shimerda. The story of their friendship outlines the determination, hardship, and resiliency of Great Plains life at the turn of the last century. Willa Cather's My Antonia is adapted by Annie Lareau, and directed by Susanna Burney.
