Obscure DestiniesLarge Print - 2006
This collection of three exquisite novellas is reminiscent of Ms. Cather's My Antonia, and O Pioneers! -- rich, soulful stories that portray the vastness of nature and honor the settlers of the American plains. Neighbour Rosicky is like a pendant to My Antonia in which Anton Rosicky, a bohemian exile who has experienced London and New York, lives out his life on a prairie farm. Either of the Two Friends could have stepped out of the pages of A Lost Lady. They are American businessmen of the Old West, the age of railroad-building, and larger-than-life outlooks. Old Mrs. Harris stands alone. Tragic meanings underlie its lighthearted mood. The scene is a Colorado town in the brilliant sand-hill country, and the story is about the struggle of three women living under one roof.
