À la recherche de New Babylon
New Babylon doesn’t exist. But if the city had to be created, duels would be allowed, and its only law would be one prohibiting lawmen. One’s breath would constantly be taken away in front of its landscapes, and also, ultimately, when getting one’s throat cut. It would be a dangerous place where at last everyone would know his true value.
In this gripping western that vividly portrays America’s Far West during the 1800s, Reverend Aaron, Charles Teasdale, Russian Bill and Pearl Guthrie search the desert in pursuit of an impossible ideal, leaving behind the footprints of their destinies. In a world where nothing lasts, “it is not a question of escaping death, but of choosing your arena.”
À la recherche de New Babylon reveals that one must build the dream life—and the dream city—on one’s own.
