I think4 it's rather a mistake to
to the landscape—to me that
suggests ornamental descriptive writing, which I hate. There really is a
good deal of movement in this narrative5. In
future announcements won't you, with Dr.
Leach's6 approval, use something like the enclosed, putting
the stress more on the people than the scene?
Miss Cather's new narrative, Death Comes etc, recounts the adventures of two
missionary priests in the old Southwest. Two hardy French priests find
themselves set down in in the strange
world7 at the end of the
Santa Fé8 trail, among
so scouts and trappers and cut-throats, old
Mexican settlements and ancient Indian pueblos. The period is that
immediately following the Mexican War, and the story is a rich, moving
panorama of life of on that wild frontier.
