    Oh my God This is beautiful I m only halfway through it but I don t care how it ends every chapter is so complete in itself, every word such unmitigated pleasure that I would be stunned absolutely floored if Cather somehow fumbled the ball in the next 150 pages This is it The work of a writer with nothing to prove A writer so humble, her words so transparent, that she seem

    But in the Old World he found himself homesick for the New It was a feeling he could not explain a feeling that old age did not weigh so heavily upon a man in New Mexico as in the Puy de Dome In New Mexico he always awoke a young man not until he rose and began to shave did he realize that he was growing older His first consciousness was a sense of the light dry wind blowing in

    Highlight here is the incredible depiction of two missionaries who undertake the megaharsh task of converting the Navajos of New Mexico to Catholicism It describes what happens when a new policy, or way of life, is instilled into people who are far away from the Old World There are little vignettes of savagery, of holy manifestation including a very succinct telling of San Diego and his visitation from

    Coming to the end of this book was like a sad farewell to some very good friends Father Joseph, Father Letour, their many friends and acquaintances who built solid and strong relationships with them over the years, and their country Oh my Their beautiful country.Father Joseph and Father Letour, both originally from France, were sent to the land of New Mexico shortly after it had been annexed They were young
