Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set primarily in the lonesome southwest desert lands of the 1920s, this previously unpublished novella is a powerful story in which landscape reflects and defines character. In this beautifully written tale, a promising young politician, Grant Arliss, flees from his complicated and pressure-ridden life in New York City to the serenity of the desert's open spaces, finding a love and a landscape that will change his life.

Cactus Thorn is one of my top ten favorite novels (novella). The writing is smart, beautiful, not overdone. The story is spare and profound. It grapples with the hypocrisy often seen in the private lives of "reformers," and the power that the "powerless" posess after all. Fierce, haunting nature-writing set in the area near the Owens Valley. Relevant today. I have purchsed copies for my women friends.
