A Swallow Press Book

People of the Valley

By Frank Waters

"Mr. Waters has created in Old Maria a character of vital and lyrical intensity. His "people of the valley' are humble, earnest, superstitious, lovable folk, the stuff of nature, the elementary stuff of a decent and prevailing humanity."

The Los Angeles Times

"Readers who are content to take the primitive and ruthless Maria del Valle on her own terms will treasure her and return to her again and again."

The New York Times

One of Frank Waters's most popular novels, People of the Valley takes place high in the Sangre de Cristo mountains where an isolated Spanish-speaking people confront a threatening world of change.


Frank Waters (1902–1995), one of the finest chroniclers of the American Southwest, wrote twenty–eight works of fiction and nonfiction.
