Summary

Language and landscape come alive in this remarkably colorful story of immigrants in southern Colorado. Among them are Greeks, Italians, Mexicans, Scots. Their struggle to survive is personal, yet they are caught up in larger events of American history in the second decade of the twentieth century, leading to the defining moment of the Ludlow Massacre in April 1914. David Masonrs"s novel also steps back from the story, questioning whether we can know the truth about it, asking us why wewantto know. Ultimately, in its charged and headlong verse, enriched by dialect and dream,Ludlowis about how we say the world, how we speak ourselves into being. Its characters, both fictional and historical figures, are intensely alive even as they are lost. Mason proves what the ancients knew-that verse remains a remarkable medium for the telling of the tale.
