It picks up after the first and has Lara Jean and Peter in some turmoil. There is a lot of turmoil throughout a good portion of this book! I don't want to give anything away but the one major thing that is in this book is the surfacing of a video from a certain s...

Most interestingly, the primary documents convincingly connect My Ántonia not only to Cather’s developing aesthetic theory but also to broad American cultural concerns of immigration, conservation, and national self-definition. This edition allows read...
