In 1851 Bishop Latour and his friend Father Valliant are despatched to New Mexico to reawaken its slumbering Catholicism. Moving along the endless prairies, Latour spreads his faith the only way he knows-gently, although he must contend with the unforgiving landscape, derelict and sometimes openly rebellious priests, and his own loneliness. Over nearly years, they leave converts and enemies, crosses, and occasionally ecstasy in their wake. But it takes a death for them to make their mark on the landscape forever.… (mehr)

In making my way through Wila Cather, this was the first one that did nothing for me. I was completely disinterested in the characters, there seemed to be no discernable plot line or general purpose to it and I could barely keep track of who was who. Perhaps the scenery of the desert Southwest is a redeeming feature but not enough for me.

Here's what I wrote after reading in 1986: "A love story really. Two French missionaries serve the Mexican and Native Americans of the New Mexico region in the mid 19th century. As Father Latour, first bishop of the diocese, dies he recalls most his life-long friend, Father Vaillant." ( )

This is a true giant in American Southwest literature. The author's weaving of a tale that involves complex characters from diverse backgrounds makes this novel interesting and worth reading. Not only did I enjoy the book but I learned a lot about indigenous cultures and the impact of the church in the American Southwest. ( )

Beautiful prose and breathtaking descriptions of the New Mexican landscape. There's not much in the way of a plot here, this is mostly a collection of vignettes depicting the lives of two French priests who established a diocese in the New Mexico Territory of the mid-1800s. Each story reveals their devotion to the church and to their calling by the service they give to their parishioners, Mexican and Native alike. I'm disappointed that parts of this have not aged well - in places the way praise is given to those same people comes across as patriarchal and condescending now. But the writing itself has aged remarkably well - its clarity and eloquence made this a pleasure to read even though it was first published over 90 years ago. ( )

Each event in this book is concrete, yet symbolic, and opens into living myth. The reader is invited to contemplate the question: What is a life well lived? This question is asked in a story so fine it brings the old words “wisdom” and “beauty” to life again.

One summer evening in the year 1848, three Cardinals and a missionary Bishop from America were dining together in the gardens of a villa in the Sabine hills, overlooking Rome.

But in reality the Bishop was not there at all [on his sickbed, in his wandering imagination]; he was standing in a tip-tilted green field among his native mountains, and he was trying to give consolation to a young man who was being torn in two before his eyes by the desire to go and the necessity to stay. He was trying to forge a new Will in that devout and exhausted priest; and the time was short, for the diligence for Paris was already rumbling down the mountain gorge.
