"The 'America' of the novel is Mexico in the 1920s, an era of political turmoil. The heroine, Kate Leslie, goes there from Europe in quest of a new life and is drawn into a revolutionary movement to revive the religion of the ancient Aztecs.
The brilliant vision of place, the violent action, the fabrication of rituals and myth for the new religion all combine to make this one of Lawrence's most vivid noels."
