"Pure adventure in the wilds of Utah during the 1960s Uranium Boom, as well as an exploration of the landscape of inner authenticity." —The Canyon Country Gazette
"A story of love, betrayal, and freedom, all set within the terrible wonders of the dawn of the Atomic Age." —The Radium Newspaper
This is already one of my all time favorite books (and I am an avid
reader). I am on my second time through and it is just as good as the
first. Already an 'old friend.' Highly recommend.
It is a story of betrayal and healing in the 1960s desert southwest.
We tag along as archeologist Chinle Miller travels the winding road of
self discovery and healing. She finds this through the various rich and
colorful characters she meets along the way (especially the mysterious
and elusive Coyote Yellowjacket) and through adventures exploring the
desrt looking for the elusive "Rosetta Stone" of pictographs hidden
somewhere in the rugged and labyrinthine canyons of eastern Utah.
The writing is superb and you will get caught up in the tale of a
young woman discovering that the deepest healing comes from within. I
can't recommend this book enough if you have any interest in the
desert southwest, tales of self-discovery or just good adventure.
—L. J. Altes
It's 1961, the height of the Cold War and a young archaeologist sets
foot into the wild canyons of southeast Utah, searching for a rock-art
panel that possibly holds the answer to the disappearance of the
Anasazi. She is accompanied by her dog, Buddy Blue, and a mysterious
sometime-companion she calls Mr. Yellowjacket.
Here, in her recently discovered journals, Chinle Miller records her
perhaps impossible quest for the elusive Bird Panel, as well as her
journey through an inner landscape, seeking peace from betrayal by one
of the great rascals of the era, Charlie Dundee, the Uranium King.
