We don't have a description for My Ántonia, but if you head over to Amazon they'll be able to tell you what this book is about!
This is almost a memoir written about some of the immigrants who came over to Canada or the United States to make a better life for themselves and their families. It was harder than they expected, some being tricked into buying property worth far less than they'd paid. The main characters are a boy from one family and a non-English speaking girl from another family. The hardships, sorrows, struggles, touches of joy make it all very interesting.

Whilst I did enjoy this 3rd book in the trilogy, I much preferred the first. This is a sweet story which makes you realise how hard life was for some people back in the day.

My Antonia introduced me to a world of which I had been previously unaware - the life of the immigrant farmer in the new territories of America. The harshness of this life contrasts with the gentleness of many of the main characters making this a poignant story. I found it a charming book to read despite some moments of sadness.
