My √Āntonia - Willa Cather

Even though I'm not doing this meme, as I really don't have many books to assign to each day's theme (heh, completely unintentional rhyme there), this was the first day that immediately brought to mind a book.


I read this in high school and was so skeptical of it before I started... it sounded SO BORING, but I started reading and I was sucked into the story, and most importantly, the setting. Such vivid and realistic descriptions of the Nebraska plains, it made me appreciate a landscape that I never thought I would.
