"Tim MacCurdy combines an intimate knowledge of New Mexico history and a story teller's skill in this remarkable novel. It should become one of our classics." -- Tony Hillerman, author of A THIEF OF TIME
"MacCurdy is a wonderful teacher and an author of exquisite quality." -- THE ALBUQUERQUE TRIBUNE
"The novel is quick and entertaining reading, giving insight into the clandestine activities of Governor Luis de Rosas and his cronies, whose exploits are chronicled in existing judicial and ecclesiastical records from that period... packed full of liaisons, class consciousness, witchcraft, warfare and a varied cast of characters." -- NEW MEXICO MAGAZINE
