Cyndi Haupt, August 4, 2012 (view all comments by Cyndi Haupt)
This book rather defies categorization. It is sort of historical fiction and travel writing, with a bit of philosophy and religion thrown in. It was extremely interesting to read how a person in the 1920s thought about life in the 1850s. And of course Will Cather is an amazing writer!

Cather's depictions of the landscape and New Mexico are at once dreamy and gripping. The action in this novel isn't really all that active-- it's slow, deliberate, and gentle but compelling nonetheless. I would read this again and again for her incredible descriptions and turns of phrase. It's the kind of descriptive writing that really makes me want to write well.
