Jim goes to see Ántonia the next day and finds her looking strong and healthy, though a little wornout. She is only twenty-four. When Jim sees her again, Ántonia seems very much a part of the land. She talks about wanting to stay there forever, even though people keep leaving and she is left alone. In a sense, she cannot leave the land that she came to as a stranger. It has become tied to her existence, though it treated her so harshly her first year there.
