In the book, My Antonia (First Vintage Classics Edition, 1994), the landscape along with Jim's reactions to it helps us to feel all the emotions of the scene. His feelings of loneliness, sadness, awe and happiness are felt through his words and we can form a picture from the descriptions, adding to what we already know. He feels these emotions in the first few scenes. All because he wants a place to call home.

of landscape help to add and put you in the character's place, seeing what they see and feeling what they feel. It seems that when Jim or some of the other characters in different situations are in a good or bad mood, the weather can be sunny and bright or rainy and overcast. If the rest of them knew this, they would have a reliable way to predict what kind of day it would be.
