The Fourth Archangel

The Fourth Archangel

(1992)
A novel by

 
In the aptly named prairie town of Ordeal, on the eve of the millennium, a powerful struggle is taking place. The farming community is fighting to survive in the turmoil of the years'-long drought and governmental indifference.
 But as the townspeople rally together when the provincial premier comes to town, other visitations -- both powerful and fantastical -- are unfolding in their midst.
 Cattle ranchers from a bygone era walk among the living, and freight trains roar on abandoned tracks."The Fourth Archangel" is a sweeping and magical living history of the land.

 Through a large and colorful cast of characters, and in writing as spare and beautiful as her subject, Sharon Butala weaves a rich and baroque tapestry of the land and the eternal human struggle to protect it, to tame it, to free ourselves of it, to live with it and love it.
