about this book

Written during the most flourishing period of Lawrence's career, The Plumed Serpent is a novel of ritual and romance set in Mexico during the 1920s. It is a story, both beautiful and strange, about Kate Leslie, an Irishwoman repelled and fascinated by the spell of Mexico, homesick and yet unable to leave. She marries Don Cipriano, an Indian, and becomes wedded not only to him, but also to a history full of terror and blood, to a land without shadows or mist.
