Classics • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1918

A Bohemian girl comes of age in a hardworking farming community on the Nebraska plains. Her longtime friend, Jim, relates her challenges with family and community, telling of hardship and sorrow as she matures into a wife and mother. In a pleasing, tranquil voice reader Joan Allen mesmerizes the listener and brings the small prairie community to life. Her enjoyable voice is evocative of a slower paced, moral, hardworking era. Grandma is exceptionally well vocalized as sprightly, warm, and caring, especially when Antonia's father kills himself. The listener will be sorry to hear MY ANTONIA end.
