"Mine is no more than a pin-point of sharp experience in the vast catastrophe. Voluntarily, for the sake of my profession I ran a risk — slight it seemed — and luck was against me."
In fact Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant's injuries from an explosion were much more than a pin-point. As she lay in a French hospital at the end of the war, she reflected on the immediate world and the larger world around her. She brings you into that world with her fresh and keen observer's eye and with painful prose that fear and loss have engendered. Her work in France was for The New Republic magazine. After her recovery, she moved to New Mexico and wrote about that state and the Native Americans who lived there.
