Abstract:

Emigrating from Bohemia to Black Hawk, Nebraska, with her family, Antonia finds no white-framed farmhouse or snug barn. Instead, the cultured Shimerda family finds itself huddled into a privitive sod house buffeted by the ceaselessly, blowing winds of the Midwest prairie. For her childhood friend Jim Burden, Antonia comes to embody the elemental spirit of this frontier, despite the events that nearly destroy her family and leave her seduced and abandoned. But passionate, beautiful, and strong enouogh to work the fields alongside the men, Antonia survives without compromising the rich, deep power of her nature.
