I just loved the reader (Patrick Lawlor) who was remarkable not only for portraying the post-adolescent boy telling the tale, but also gave form to Antonia, as she grew from hardy immigrant girl - no sissy, she! - to virtual workhorse, never losing her spirit. I loved the setting - that prairie, wide, beautiful, untamed - and those people set out to tame it. I loved the various details - the dried mushrooms handcarried from Bohemia, so precious! (I was so intrigued by this book, I had to look up "Bohemia," because I had not known it was an actual country, had always heard the term "Bohemian" as though it was a region or an ethnic group. But no! A very important country until just very recently! ) A great, classic, "mind-expanding" story for this old Easterner! Most definitely highly recommended for young and old alike! (Especially old Easterners!)
