Willa Cather's best known novel; a narrative that recounts a life lived simply in the silence of the southwestern desert.


What the Critics Say

"A truly remarkable book... Soaked through and through with atmosphere... From the riches of her imagination and sympathy Miss Cather has distilled a very rare piece of literature. It stands out, from the very resistance it opposes to classification." (New York Times)
"The most sensuous of writers, Willa Cather builds her imagined world as solidly as our five senses build the universe around us." (Rebecca West)

Beautiful story

Great story with a very compelling historical take on Catholicism in late 18th / early 19th century America.

Breathtakingly beautiful

I was glued to my ears, totally immersed in the beautiful language, description of landscape, and the story.
I was transported back to 17th and 18th century.
