Death Comes for the Archbishop
By Willa Cather

Reviewed by Joseph M. Giardiello

If you have ever been to New Mexico, it's easy to see it as stark, barren, devoid of life. But it is only after really savoring the landscape, becoming part of it, do you begin to fully understand.

Willa Cather's `Death Comes for the Archbishop' makes you feel the same way. On the surface it is a lightly written sketch of the missionary journeys of two Catholic priests in territorial New Mexico. But it is that simple life chronicled that brings the desert

Sparse? Maybe. Beautiful? Definitely. But it is the very simplicity that draws you in.

The two padres spend as much time on the road traveling between the small towns and villages of rugged New Mexico as they do ministering to their flock. Meeting renegade priests, Kit Carson, Indian settlements, criminals and horse thieves, and gold miners.

In the end, we feel, with the Bishop as death approached, that we are leaving the past. We wait for the future to take care of itself.
