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 forty 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 . . .… (mere)

I LOVE Willa Cather and compared to other books this book deserves five stars but compared to Willa Cather's books I think this one is more of a four star. In her other books I just relate so well to the characters but I don't quite find that as much in this book. Although, I have to say this, Willa out does herself with the nature, landscapes and feeling with this book. She was inspired by different trips to Europe and America. ( )

I'm not certain I liked this classic read, however, the story does offer the reader a clear look into the lives of two men Father Latour and Father Vaillant and the joys and difficulties they faced as missionaries in a new and untamed land. They certainly had their work cut out for them and they never faltered. They persevered in spite of the harsh conditions they found themselves in. I liked Latour and Vaillant. They were good men who worked hard, with little encouragement. Latour traveled on his donkey, Contento. He traveled for weeks and months on his faithful donkey facing hardships along the way. I thought it interesting Latour and Vaillant met and knew Kit Carson. There's a familiar name in American history. So, all in all as I write this review and think about the story, I find I did like it. ( )

From the title, I had expected this to be a rather light weight whodunit. Instead it is a sympathetic, somewhat sentimental, exploration of 19th century Catholic missionaries in New Mexico. The land is portrayed well, the missionaries are good hearted people, their relationship is warming, their concern for the impoverished and unjustly treated Mexicans and Indians feels genuine. The author clearly has sympathy for their faith, their calling and their mission, but their spirituality is not really explored. So I enjoyed it as a light and unchallenging read. October 2020. ( )

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.
