What is the religious symbolism in My Antonia? How is My Antonia an American Genesis? Why might Cather have chosen to fram her narrative in this fashion?

I thought it would be how at first God made nothing but land, which is what Jim saw at first and then civilization started to appear because of all the immigrants.
