You can read lots of reviews of this book. It is a beautiful novel about American life on the prairie in the late 1800's. The main characters are an American orphan boy living with his grandparents and am immigrant girl. The story follows them from aged 10 or so thru middle age. I'll make 1 comment about the 99-cent Nook book. It isn't indexed like a regular nook book, no hot-linked table-of-contents/chapters. No integrated dictionary. I didn't know that when I bought it. I would have bought it anyway. Barnes and Noble, keep the 99-cent books coming!

Enjoyed this book as reading history of long ago reveals how life changes but really don't every hundred years. Love the people in this story.

My Antonia is very exquisite for those who enjoy history, adventures, and suspense. For young aged kids for example middle schoolers through high school is recommended. You won't be disappointed in the piece of literature! :)

I vowed to read a few classics, and My Antonia crossed my path first. This book captures life for immigrant families on the prairies. The author excels in providing descriptive detail of the stunning scenery and complex true characters.

When Willa Cather writes about the immigrants who came to America and settled on the plains of Nebraska, the reader gains an understanding of the history, the hardships and the endurance of these courageous men and women. My Antonia is a classic that endures because of its characters, the excellent writing, and the lessons we can learn of the history of this great country. I waited decades before I picked up this book and I am sorry I waited so long!
