My Antonia, by Willa Cather. This novel is set in the pioneer days of the American prairies, in a small European immigrant settlement. Narrator James recounts growing up on the farm and the harsh realities of families fighting to survive with next to nothing in a harsh Nebraska climate. The story spans thirty years and focuses on James' friendship with the Bohemian immigrant girl Antonia. Good ole' early American lit: starving pioneers, landscape description, and "New World" idealism.
