    This could have been written today were there anyone with Masters' ability to write it.

    Full of deep feelings of loss... his wife, his children, his health, his country, his world...

    Using the tragic deaths of Native Americans at Starved Rock, near Utica , Illinois as his metaphor, Masters describes a loss of nature, a loss of innocence and a loss of the founding principles of our nation and the enlightenment through ignorance, superstition and demagoguery.

    You will need to keep a search engine handy as his numerous allusions and allegories strain one's education and experience to keep up...
