As excited as I am to read Son of Gun, I was dismayed to see the memoir called a novel right below the headline.
Tim thanks for this story about A World Separated by Borders...
Read Casey Tefertillers "Wyatt Earp : The Life Behind the Legend" alongside this if you want to see the man, not just the criminal.
Fantastic. Otherwise mundane scapes come alive. You really have to see these prints in person. The power of old film is the print. And the printer. I hope she did them all on her own.
Let's just divert the remaining puddles of the Colorado River to Southern Arizona --- let a thousand trees grow and flowers bloom --- fly fishing in the Santa Cruz river -- tubing --- fantasies ...
wow, this looks like a great book. I often wonder how we can sustain this life as it gets hotter and drier every year.
Will we ever learn? Why in the world would we let the San Pedro River be pumped dry? Why would we listen to the ridiculous claims that by pumping enough groundwater for an additional 7,000 homes nears it's banks there will be no impact on the flow of the river. Do they (the developers) think we are that stupid? Or do they think we are that greedy and short sighted?
This looks awesome. The loss of riparian habitat in SE AZ due to groundwater pumping is heartbreaking. And yes, I'm fully aware that by living here I am part of the problem.
Excellent review, Christine! Certainly piqued my interest! Thank you!
Margaret, I really like your approach with this review: identifying and summarizing a common theme with much of the artwork (i.e. birds), and then then sorting it all out with an ad hoc "awards ceremony". You should take it a step further, and create a "Regan" award for each of those categories. "And the winner of the Regan for 'Best Vacation' goes to....!" And then email the winner a little jpg file of the award graphic. ;)
The hippie culture has changed in Taos.. The communes and the race wars over..The annual Hippies vs Indians baseball game was today, a 30 year tradition..
The headline is disappointing; I was expecting some reference to the book by our local author, Barbara Kingsolver. Her book entitiled High Tide in Tucson: Essays From Now or Never is one of my favorites.
I have been thoroughly, delightfully impressed by Root's translations. I'd like to suggest readers visit the site http://www.redpoppy.net/pablo_neruda.php for more information on Neruda, including a biography, a documentary, and more.
Chuckle. Yes, that David Duke-led Klan Border Watch of 1980 -- which just coincidentally resembled the Minuteman operation of April 2005 in many ways -- was just a figment of my imagination, created to sell books.
Here's an article that lays out the lineage pretty clearly:
Thanks for the nice review, Christine. I really came to love Tucson in my time there.
I guess if this book can compare the Minute men to the KKK then I can compare illegals to invading hordes that want to take over our county and destroy it through monetary means by leaching off our government.
But one is true and the other is just to sell a book. Where are the book burners when we need them?
I have every book written by Joe Brown, Best books I have ever read! I sure hope he writes 60 more, I am 77 so that should get me to the end of my time! I was in Patagonia several time from 1960, my Mother & Dad lived in Tucson (running horses). I loan my books to any one who wants to read them, even sent one to a lady (hair dresser) in Rapid City, SD, she was born in Patagonia. Kaleta Jones Torti, Athens, Texas
Robert Utley has the "chops" to write an accurate history of Geronimo unembellished by all of the revisionist guilt that seems to prevail in most recent movies and books about the Apache indians.
The "bad indians" vs. "good indians" reversal in modern popular perceptions really misses the complexities of the conflicts that existed in the 19th century "Indian Wars" period. Robert Utley has a wealth of knowledge on the period and is a reliable source for the history of that time.
At amazon.com, Geronimo's autobiography is available for free on Kindle.
