Publisher Description

Willa Cather's best known novel is an epic--almost mythic--story of a single human life lived simply in the silence of the southwestern desert. In 1851 Father Jean Marie Latour comes to serve as the Apostolic Vicar to New Mexico. What he finds is a vast territory of red hills and tortuous arroyos, American by law but Mexican and Indian in custom and belief. In the almost forty years that follow, Latour spreads his faith in the only way he knows--gently, all the while contending with an unforgiving landscape, derelict and sometimes openly rebellious priests, and his own loneliness. Out of these events, Cather gives us an indelible vision of life unfolding in a place where time itself seems suspended.

Very nice.

A very well written historically based novel which is very well read. Lamy and Machebeuf---two real great pioneering men in New Mexico and Colorado---are represented here as fictitious characters. A Willa Cather classic.

Easy to listen to and will do so again soon. Bravo, bravo.
