From the author of the #1 New York Times
bestseller The Lost City of the Monkey God comes an
entrancing, eloquent, and entertaining account of the
author's adventurous journey on horseback through the
Southwest in the heart of Navajo desert
In 1992 author Douglas Preston and his
wife and daughter rode horseback across 400 miles of desert
in Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. They were retracing the
route of a Navajo deity, the Slayer of Alien Gods, on his
quest to restore beauty and balance to the Earth. More than
a travelogue, Preston's account of their "one tough
journey, luminously remembered" (Kirkus Reviews) is
a tale of two cultures meeting in a sacred land and is
"like traveling across unknown territory with Lewis and
Clark to the Pacific" (Dee Brown, author of Bury My
Heart At Wounded Knee).
