Willa Cather called My Ántonia the best thing I’ve done. Paperback: 400 pages.

Willa Cather's best known novel; a narrative that recounts a life lived simply in the silence of the southwestern desert. All are bewitched by her brilliance and grace, and all are ultimately betrayed. For Marian longs for "life on any terms," and in fulfilling herself, she loses all she loved and all who loved her. This, Willa Cather's most perfect novel, is not only a portrait of a troubling beauty, but also a haunting evocation of a noble age slipping irrevocably into the past. History & Fiction.

One ran to put his horse away, another helped him off with his fur coat and hung it up, and Josephine, the youngest child and the only daughter, quickly set another place under her mother’s direction. With Mary, to feed creatures was the natural expression of affection, - her chickens, the calves, her big hungry boys.

The jacket of the first edition of Obscure Destinies announced “Three New Stories of the West,” heralding Willa Cather’s return to what many thought of as “her” territory—the Great Plains. These three stories, “Neighbour Rosicky,” “Old Mrs. Harris,” and “Two Friends,” reflected her return to the well of memory that had inspired the books that made her reputation.

The Willa Cather Scholarly Edition presents for the first time the three stories in their historical and biographical context, with an interpretive historical essay and detailed explanatory notes.

These are wonderful stories by Willa Cather but do NOT buy this edition! It is an abysmally produced and formatted print-on-demand copy. You'd be better off simply printing them off online to read them.

In time. The same I purchased. No problems at all. That is enough. That is enoyuf. That is enough. That is enough.

This collection of three stories--each over fifty pages--contains what I believe is the most emotionally beautiful "short story" ever written: "Neighbour Rosicky".

Here is a story of love, and despair; beauty and tragedy. All life entails suffering, but it is up to us how we handle suffering: we either handle it with dignity or despair; this volume bespeaks of the former. When the crop fails, Rosicky takes his family on a picknick, so they can appreciate what they have, not what they don't. Rosicky--with a bad heart--rakes the Russian thistle from his son's neighboring farm because "he was afraid their seed would root and 'take the alfalfa'". Some call this "silly sentimentalism", but it is not: it is the beauty of appreciating life in the simple things.

Willa Cather, like Shakespeare, is a word-smith for all ages, and will be read--in a thousand years--alongside Homer and his ilk.

'The Neighbor Rosicky' is a beautiful story of a real person of family life. The
descriptive detail is beautiful yet simple.

'Old Mrs. Smith' is a story of what it is to be an old lady - - her grace, her role
and pride as seen from many angles.

'Two Friends' deals with a strange friendship, strong in its being and strong in
its destruction.
