Set primarily in the lonesome southwest desert lands of the 1920s, this previously unpublished novella is a powerful story in which landscape reflects and defines character. In this beautifully written tale, a promising young politician, Grant Arliss, flees from his complicated and pressure-ridden life in New York City to the serenity of the desert's open spaces, finding a love and a landscape that will change his life. The foreword and afterword add a great deal of context. Despite the note in the foreword that errors had been removed from the manuscript, some remained. Those errors are left in this digital copy.
