Reviews

A luminous work of exploration, both personal and historical, written by one of my very favorite writers of the American Southwest. This is a piercingly beautiful and eloquent book.--Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Lost City of the Monkey God and Cities of Gold
[A] great adventure story.
[A]n amiably discursive, often beguiling entry in what has become a venerable literary form: the expedition in pursuit of an expedition. Roberts knows his Southwestern history, and he knows how to craft an artful sentence.--Philip Connors
