Lamy of Santa Fe, his life and times by Paul Horgan ( Book )
21 editions published between 1975 and 2012 in English and held by 1,996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Originally published in 1975, this Pulitzer Prize-winning biography chronicles the life of Archbishop Jean Baptiste Lamy (1814-1888), New Mexico's first resident bishop and the most influential, reform-minded Catholic official in the region during the late 1800s. Lamy's accomplishments, including the endowing of hospitals, orphanages, and English-language schools and colleges, formed the foundation of modern-day Santa Fe and often brought him into conflict with corrupt local priests. His life story, also the subject of Willa Cather's Death Comes for the Archbishop, describes a pivotal period in the American Southwest, as Spanish and Mexican rule gave way to much greater influence from the U.S. and Europe. Historian and consummate stylist Paul Horgan has written a chronicle filled with hardy, often extraordinary adventure, all of it sustained by Lamy's magnificent strength of character."--BOOK JACKET

The thin mountain air by Paul Horgan ( Book )
7 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This time the period is the early 1920s. Richard leaves college when his father, the Lieutenant Governor, becomes ill with tuberculosis and is sent with his family to Albuquerque. In these new surroundings Richard's own precarious health soon becomes his family's concern and the doctor prescribes a period of outdoor work and "toughening up" for him at the WZL Ranch. In this "world elsewhere," Richard observes the strange domestic drama of old Don Elizario Wenzel, the owner, and Concha, his eighteen-year-old second wife, and its repercussions involving other ranch workers like Tom Agee, the Bible-talking manager, and Buz Rennison, the primitive young sensualist, with whom Richard shares a bunk room. The book's climax is a horrifying murder, which occurs during the season of the sweaty, grueling work of sheep-dipping. THE THIN MOUNTAIN AIR can be described as an exploration of the forms of love, as perceived through the awakening consciousness of the young protagonist. In the Dorchester scenes, Richard's need ffor deep parental love is warmly reciprocated, in contrast to the beckoning mystery of sexual love, symbolized for him by an anonymous young couple he observes living alone on an empty ship. In the ranch setting, the compulsive sensuality of Buz, who drags Richard off to a country wedding, leads to a night of debauchery and to Richard's first experience of reckless lust. The Don Elizario-Concha-Buz triangle is emblematic of the violence and irrationality of uncontrolled passion, while the turnabouts in Richard's knowledge even of those closest to him present another aspect of the novel's many-sided theme."--Jacket

Main line west is a hymn to the faithfulness of love and the power of the human spirit, even though these conspire to bring bitter tragedy upon a woman and child who embody them. -- Far from Cibola is a parable of the inescapable effect of men and women upon each other in desire, hunger, joy, and sorrow. -- The common heart interweaves four narratives about people of different ages and natures in whom can be felt the warmth and glow of life.
