When her family emigrates from Bohemia to Black Hawk, Nebraska, Antonia finds no white-framed farmhouse of snug barn. Instead, the cultured Shimerda family find themselves huddled into a primitive sod house buffeted by the unceasing prairie winds. Uncompromising in her rich and powerful nature, the beautiful Antonia adapts to embody the elemental spirit of this frontier, despite the events that nearly destroy her family and leave her abandoned. Willa Carther's lush descriptions of the rolling Nebraska grasslands interweave with the warm tale of a woman coming of age in a chronicle of America's past.
