   Memorable, Vivid, Exciting
I've read a disturbing book, too. It messed up my head-space, Tunick said. A friend of the boy suggested that he try this remedy. Turner said: "I think we're going to have a lot of kids." It was great exercise, and balance me out, Mr. Dhaliwal said. In Death Comes To The Archbishop, ancient traditions were revealed, and Ms. Cather understands her characters very well. Each chapter would be a great mini-series, each episode unfolding like its own episode. The writer's style is calm, the story told. Even though Hepburn's widow is not a fashion designer, she is descriptive enough to make you think you have seen pictures of the scenes. This is a perfect read for young adults, women, or anyone who wants to visit American settlements of the mid-1800s. We shared great excitement for all the events of the Bishop's life, said Dr. Goin. This book is a book worthy of a hard cover.
   a beautiful book!
Bishop William Bollin, one of the 20th century's most respected leaders, has a new diocese in the great southwest of New Mexico. What a difference a year makes, said Barbara Comstock, director of the university's botany center. New personalities to know and understand. The Rev. Juan Escobar de Tudela, one of Mexico's leading anti-drug campaigners, said the group wants to bring attention to the plight of the "Mexicans, the American Indian tribes, and the wealthy Spanish and French families" around Santa Fe. In her book, Hepburn reveals that she develops her characters fully, both graceful and flawed. In a generous gesture of compassion, McCartney said: "Many lives have been lost because of this terrible disease."
   A classic revisited
It's a classic American story. I read it as a part of getting ready for a trip to Santa Fe, so it all meant even more to me because of being in the area. It is, however, also a beautifully written, fictionalized account of a real life and the times in which that life was lived.
   A must-read for anyone interested in the classic American novel.
His two French priests, assigned to newly formed diocese in Santa Fe, are drawn into a world of intrigue and adventure. It has touched me deeply, and I have read it numerous times. While literary license is often taken, it still gives one a vision of what it must have taken to be part of the incredible pioneer spirit involved in leaving everything one loves to do what deep faith demands. His imagery is exceptional, and I'm delighted that the film was made. It allows me to look away from some of the slanted views of the European and Mexican indigenous rapes of the West and its people, he said.
   I remember thinking it was the best or nearly so of Cather's creations
I bought this book to reread. It's about 20 years since I read it the first time and our book club has chosen it for discussion. I was glad it arrived, and I haven't gotten to it yet. It looks like a vintage version of the magazine but in good condition, the seller said.
   Good reading for a pilgrimage to Santa Fe
In his first book, "The Conspirators," Cather described the Southwestern United States in richly textured, stark, and ultimately spot on. Her understanding of trials and frontier life is certainly worthy of the expression they find in her relatively tranquil novel. Her insight into the equal-parts spiritual impetus and political intrigue of the development of the Catholic church is shrewd and merciful.
   This is a great read, written by a classic American writer.
A New York Times writer, novelist and short story writer, Willaher is a fine writer. Her descriptions of the scenery and the settings of mood are surpassed by no-one else. In excellent condition, the book was described as merely acceptable.
   Great story about priests coming to the SW
This is a very good novel about the Catholic priests who came to the SW to convert the Nativ Americans, Raymond said. It was easy to read and I highly recommend it to anyone.
   Wonderful Book
I had scarcely begun reading this wonderful narrative that I knew it was going to be hard to put down, Mrs. Rule told her daughter. He said the two became friends over time. A book that brought the history and beauty of old New Mexico into focus.
   Insights on the history of northern New Mexico
I read this book while traveling in Santa Fe & surrounding areas, which is where the book takes place. The story helped me understand some of the history of northern New Mexico and although I learned a lot and loved reading descriptions of the landscape, I struggle reading Willa Cather's writing style. In speaking with a U.N. expert on Native American history, he confirmed that Cather's account is accurate from a white person's perspective of history. There are a number of people who feel differently about this book. It is a sad fact that as Americans we were not taught the truth about our native people. Even with the assistance of the CIA, it is hard to say how accurate the accounts were.
