Reviews

"A truly remarkable book . . . Soaked through and through with atmosphere . . . From the riches of her imagination and sympathy Miss Cather has distilled a very rare piece of literature. It stands out, from the very resistance it opposes to classification." --The New York Times

"The most sensuous of writers, Willa Cather builds her imagined world as solidly as our five senses build the uiverse around us." --Rebecca West

"[Cather's] descriptions of the Indian mesa towns on the rock are as beautiful, as unjudging, as lucid, as her descriptions of the Bishop's cathedral. It is an art of 'making, ' of clear depiction--of separate objects, whose whole effect works slowly and mysteriously in the reader, and cannot be summed up. . . . Cather's composed acceptance of mystery is a major, and rare, artistic achievement." --A. S. Byatt
