About This Item

New York: Random House / Vintage Books, June 1990. Vintage Classics Edition. Near Fine. Light dust soiling to top edge, otherwise As New. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 297 pages.

Willa Cather's best known novel is an epic 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.
