In the mid-1950s, America was flush with prosperity and saw an unbroken line of progress clear to the horizon, while the West was still very much wild. In this ambitious, incandescent debut, Malcolm Brooks animates that time and untamed landscape in a tale of the modern and the ancient, of love and fate, and of heritage threatened by progress. Catherine Lemay is a young archaeologist on her way to Montana with a huge task before her--a canyon "as deep as the devil's own appetites." Working ahead of a major dam project, she has one summer to prove that nothing of historical value will be lost in the flood. From the moment she arrives, nothing is familiar--the vastness of the canyon itself mocks the contained, artifact-rich digs in post-Blitz London where she cut her teeth. And then there's John H, a former mustanger and veteran of the US Army's last mounted cavalry campaign, living a fugitive life in the canyon. John H inspires Catherine to see beauty in the stark landscape, and her heart opens to more than just the vanished past.

It really would be nice if authors would leave graphic sex out. Or have a big bold "TRASH" rating on the front cover. Nothing ticks me off more than being well into a book only to have to turn it off. Seriously, Mr. Brooks, what does it add? If I want to read Danielle Steele, I'll read Danielle Steele.

Very readable novel about a young woman who follows her passion for archaeology rather than the expected role of a wife and mother. A dam project is planned on Native American land and she is hired ostensibly to find if there are ancient sites that would be lost to the project. It held my attention and the characters are well developed. Three paws up from Abby Tabby and Kristi

I enjoyed this despite the way it jumped in time sequence, which was somewhat confusing for me. Parts were less interesting than others.
