Synopsis: In the mid-nineteenth century Father Latour, eventually to become archbishop of Santa Fe, went with his friend from seminary days, Father Valliant, to win the Southwest for Catholicism. After nearly forty years of love and service, the archbishop died "of having lived." This unaffected narrative of a human life is perhaps Willa Cather's masterpiece. She recounts history so that we feel the events happened yesterday and might happen again today or tomorrow.

From the Back Cover: Death Comes for the Archbishop sprang from Willa Cather's love for the land and cultures of the American Southwest. Published in 1927 to both praise and perplexity, it has since claimed for itself a major place in twentieth-century literature. The narrative follows Bishop Jean Latour and Father Joseph Vaillant, friends since their childhood in France, as they organize 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 Laury and Father Joseph Machebeuf, face religious corruption, natural adversity, and the loneliness of living in a strange and unforgiving land. The historical essay traces the artistic and spiritual development that led to its writing. The broad-ranging explanatory notes illuminate the elements of French, Mexican, Hispanic, and Native American cultures that meet in the course of the narrative, they also explain the part played by the land and its people - their history, religion, art, and languages.
