"St. Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman" is the sequel to Walter M Miller Jr's "A Canticle for Leibowitz," a post-apocalyptic take on the relationship between religion and empirical science. "St. Leibowitz" actually occurs sometime between the beginning and the end of the previous book; the world has repopulated itself, to a point, and matters have come to a head between three regions of what once was America. One one side is a christian military dictatorship, on the other the Church, and in between are the Nomadic tribes of the Plains who see no conflict between converting to Christianity and holding to their traditional beliefs. It's difficult to go more into the plot than that in a brief review, but the conflict is viewed by the reader through the person of a young monk unsure of his devotion to his order. He finds himself working for a Cardinal with more in his plans than prayers for peace, and watches as conflict escalates to war. Ultimately the novel seems to be trying to make a statement about the nature of religious plurality and the rock and hard place of theocracy vs autocracy, but at this point I can't be sure of what that statement is. This is not to say that the book fails in its goal, merely that it is a complicated work of fiction with a lot to say. It made me think deeply about the cost of religious strife and the struggle for religious freedom, even if I have not yet come to any conclusions.
