 A biography of Juan Bautista (John Baptiste) Lamy and his sometimes colorful career in pushing for church reforms and defrocking local priests, and of his passion for gardens. Lamy was the first Archbishop of Santa Fe, who so inspired Willa Cather that she used him as a model for the Archbishop character in her 'Death Comes For The Archbishop.'

Horgan won the Pulitzer Prize in 1976 for this book (his 2nd).
