Death comes for the archbishop is a historical novel written by Willa Cather and originally published in 1927.

Based on two real characters, Jean-Baptiste Lamy and Joseph Projectus Machebeuf, this historical novel deals with the attempts of a Catholic bishop and priest to establish a new diocese in the territory of New Mexico.

The story features Jean Marie Latour who travels with Joseph Vaillant from Ohio to New Mexico. While Vaillant is fearless in promulgating his faith, Latour is more reserved and introspective.

Discover this epic story of a purposeful human life lived simply in a place where time seems to have stood still.

"ONE afternoon in the autumn of 1851 a solitary horseman, followed by a pack-mule, was pushing through an arid stretch of country somewhere in central New Mexico."
