Fun and amazingly detailed story about how life is in the canyonlands of Utah! Ed writes so well you can picture the scenery and smell the juniper trees!

I got half way through and really lost interest. Might pick up and try to finish later. The writing is fantastic in some sections and early I though it was a great read. But in sections the book seems to go off on tangents that seem more interesting to the writer than to this reader.

She walked around and saw somthing glinting in the light. She looked at it and saw a time staff. She grabbed it and hid it.
