Willa Cather's best known novel; a narrative that recounts a life lived simply in the silence of the southwestern desert.
©2014 Willa Cather (P)2016 Random House Audio
"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)

I was blown away by the descriptions of the New Mexico sky and landscape. I wanted to jump in my car and drive to Santa Fe. I downloaded this book after reading a travel piece in the New York Times that quoted from the novel extensively and was blown away by both the descriptions of the landscape but even more so by the description of the life of early missionaries, the Mexicans and the native Americans. Highly recommend!
Great story with a very compelling historical take on Catholicism in late 18th / early 19th century America.
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.
I've been watching for this audible version of this book for years! Thank you, whoever made this happen.
