Larry Donovan (My Ántonia) My Ántonia, written in 1918, is considered Willa Cather’s greatest achievement. It revolves around the free-spirited Bohemian girl (Ántonia) and her friends growing up in Black Hawk, Nebraska during the era of pioneers. Larry is the boy who uses Ántonia’s infatuation with him to his advantage. After asking her to marry him, Larry impregnates her, steals her money and runs off without her. Not exactly the most sympathetic of characters, huh? Jim, the novel’s narrator, really dislikes him (but then again, Jim is secretly in love with Ántonia). As a transient passenger conductor on a railroad, Larry freely lives the life of a womanizer. But high-spirited Ántonia nonetheless raises her (and Larry’s) child alone with the same determination, fearlessness and resolve that is representative of the brave people who settled the American west.

Rich weaves the words of Larry Bird s childhood experiences in such a way that even the youngest basketball player will be inspired to play with a passion. Award-winning illustrator, Robert Casilla, has painted the characters of Larry Bird s world with stunning accuracy. Casilla s portrayal of French Lick, Indiana and the people who influenced Bird in the 1970s provide an unforgettable portrait of a boy growing up in a place that he will always call home.
