My Antonia Written By: Willa Cather
The way that the book My Antonia, and the real prairie connect, are in many ways. Like the fact that the book basically takes place in a Prairie. The immigrants travel throughout Nebraska and through the meadows and prairies.
The book describes Nebraska and the prairie to be sorta like a place to get away and a place of peace. I can almost feel the grass in the meadow swaying back and forth.
When we actually went to the prairie, I realized that the other was on point with her description of it. I felt so relaxed and free. Almost as if i could sit there all day long and not have a care in the world.
I think that the most interesting thing about this book is the fact of how accurate the details are about everything. I wish that i lived in Nebraska back then so that i could have seen the age and beauty of it. I felt like I honestly wouldn't have cared if my phone died as long as i could sit there and stare out at the grass and the beauty of the area all day.
