Book 1: Chapter 9 Summary

The first snow falls in December, and Jim's eyes fall on a circle in the landscape that was mysteriously made by Indians. Jim has a sled built by Fuchs and takes A'ntonia and Yulka on a ride. Everyone is cold, and later Jim gets sick and must stay inside. Jim's description of staying indoors is of warmth, comfort and hearing stories of Fuchs's adventurous life. Fuchs shares a humorous story about his trip to America in which he is supposed to escort a woman on her way to meet her husband. The woman has triplets, and everyone is skeptical of Fuchs and what has happened between him and this woman, although nothing ever occurred.
