Souls of Wind

Fiction. SOULS OF WIND is a story of inner agitation, a quest for beatitude that plays out in the dynamics of the American West in 1880. French poet Arthur Rimbaud makes a detour to the United States whose emerging post-Civil War exhilarations and violence plunges him into a full immersion of frontier wildness, an odyssey of heart, heat and radical hunger with a paleontologist and his Nietzsche-infatuated daughter that brings him into contact with another restless and agitated soul: Billy the Kid.
