This classic by Willa Cather depicts a life lived simply and singly in the silence of the Southwest. In 1851, arriving to the new Territory of New Mexico, Father Jean Marie Latour comes to serve as vicar apostolic, where he encounters a vastness of hills and arroyos that is ostensibly now part of the U.S. but, really, far more Navajo, Hopi, and Mexican. Like Jerome of Stridon, Latour does God’s work in the desert—wherefrom Cather wrests a poetry now hailed as one of the best novels of the twentieth century.
