Journey’s End (1929) is one of the great stage plays. Set during the First World War, it had no women in it, no heroes and no love interest – it was about the hopes and fears of a group of ordinary men waiting in a dug-out for an attack to begin. It was based on Sherriff’s own letters home, and its success was in part due to his ability to recreate the trench experience exactly as he had lived it.

On the way into town, I stopped to see the wagon tracks on the Santa Fe Trail .  In the days before cowboys and gunslingers, the trail went through here, transporting pioneers from Franklin, Missouri to Santa Fe de Nuevo, Mexico.  For a brief time it was the road to the future, an avenue of progress.  But then the railroad came and obsoleted it.  Like all good things in time its day had passed.
