Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

New Mexican novelist Fergusson (1890-1971) knew both those who first settled the region and those who transformed its pueblos into western towns. In his finest novels he chronicles this change with concern for all: the pioneer or mountain man and the lawyer or banker who replaced him. Unfortunately, Gish is more interested in the role of critic than of biographer. Portraying Fergusson as lonely and private, he condescends to both man and writer and fails to bring life to his subject; he has no success in tracing Fergusson's work in films or in drawing revelation from sources. No bibliography; index and illustrations not seen. For research collections only. Timothy L. Zindel, Loyola Law Sch. Lib., Los Angeles
