Steve Bodio¿s story grabs you and clings to your heart. The knowledge, laughter, pain and tears of the author flow from the pages to your soul. You will come away with an intimate feel for the New Mexico environment, wildlife, and the robust & diversified people who make it their home. From the first page, I didn¿t want to put the book down or the story to end.

In an era where illiterates like Shaquile O'Neal and Tim Allen hit the top ten list with their inane blather, it was a gift from the Gods to stumble upon this gem. When I put Querencia (kur-en-see-uh) down after having read it in one sitting, I asked myself, 'How in the hell is it that I have never heard of this Bodio character before?' He is a MASTERFUL author, a naturalist on par with ANY giant your memory or imagination may conjur, and as genuinely sensitive a man as there ever was. Only after MUCH research did I learn that East coast publishers hate him (his other works explain why: he's smarter than most all publishing execs and editors COMBINED, which is intimidating if you are a micro-apendaged ivy leaguer with a hi-lighter), and that's why he is not a, 'sold' author. Too bad. If Oprah read this, she'd cry herself into a migraine and then make Bodio a NY Times #1 seller: it's that good. IF YOU READ IT BASED UPON THIS RECOMMENDATION AND DO NOT THINK MY ASSESSMENT IS ACCURATE, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AND SET ME STRAIGHT! I am confident that I will not be hearing from you.

This book is incredibly written. Mr. Bodio has a wonderful mastery of words that can only be explained by reading this book. One would not expect an author whose works include books on Falconry and Firearms to have the ability to write about love so perfectly. I recommend this novel to anyone who loves the southwest, anyone who has loved, or anyone that has been touched by someone who left them too early. Please indulge your senses and see true, real love written like it has never been before.
