"In 1995 Anna takes a job as a seasonal employee of the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. On her day off she goes hiking into the park never to return. Her co-workers think she's simply moved on. But Anna wakes up at the bottom of a dry well, without clear memory of how she found herself in this situation. As she pieces together her memory, it becomes clear that someone has trapped her there, and no one knows that she is missing. Anna must muster courage and determination in order to survive"-- Cover verso.

This "prequel" to the series tells how Anna Pigeon left New York City to become a park ranger in Arizona.

Anna Pigeon’s first adventure, before she joined the park service, before she grew into the tough-as-nails park ranger we love to follow. In some ways, it makes the book very strange, because it’s not the character we know, or at least, not yet. It’s certainly gripping, though.

Nevada Barr continues to write great Anna Pigeon novels. I love the character, as I too am a park ranger and can relate to her. Based in the Glen Canyon area.

Like the Prey series by John Sanford, Ms. Barr has put new life into her Anna Pigeon series by going back in time to when Anna Pigeon was a new seasonal Park Ranger. John Sanford did a similar thing with his Lucas Davenport character.If you are a fan of these popular series, it is great fun to see the protagonists at a younger age

well written with good plot - not my genre really so feel uncomfortable giving a rating.

This is a prequel to the Anna Pigeon book series. The Anna that we meet here has not yet honed her sleuthing and survival skills. We learn a lot about her, including why she goes into the law enforcement aspect of rangering. I enjoyed the description of the scenery at the park as well.
