People of the Valley

By: Waters, Frank
Price: $14.95

One of Frank Waters’s most popular novels, People of the Valley takes place high in the Sangre de Cristo mountains where an isolated Spanish-speaking people confront a threatening world of change. “Readers who are content to take the primitive and ruthless Maria del Valle on her own terms will treasure her and return to her again and again.” —The New York Times “Mr. Waters has created in Old Maria a character of vital and lyrical intensity. His ‘people of the valley’ are humble, earnest, superstitious, lovable folk, the stuff of nature, the elementary stuff of a decent and prevailing humanity.” —The Los Angeles Times
