Summary
When Cather first visited the American Southwest in 1912, she found a new world to imagine and soon came to feel that the story of the Catholic Church in [the Southwest] was the most interesting of all its stories. The narrative follows Bishop Jean Latour and Father Joseph Vaillant, friends since their childhood in France, as they organise the new Roman Catholic diocese of Santa Fe subsequent to the Mexican War. While seeking to revive the church and build a cathedral in the desert, the clerics, like their historical prototypes, Bishop Jean Lamy and Father Joseph Machebeuf, face religious corruption, natural adversity, and the loneliness of living in a strange and unforgiving land
