Thanks for the suggestions. I would also add:
A History of the Ancient Southwest by Stephen H Lekson
and two blogs:
stevelekson.com
http://gamblershouse.wordpress.com/
As an ex-archaologist the book was a page-turner for me and I stayed up all night with it. The two blogs are just fun.

Hello, everyone--the novel I was trying to remember Wed. night, because of its tale of an ancient odyssey of Indians from South to North America, is Almanac of the Dead by Leslie Marmon Silko. (Lib. has 3 copies.) Silko has also published The Pueblo Imagination: Landscape and Memory in Photographs. Right now I'm reading a tale of the Mexican Revolution, The Hummingbird's Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea. (I've come to a part where an engineer, filling in for a priest, is trying to make the "23rd Psalm" relevant to cattle herders: "The Lord is my buckaroo...." You'd also enjoy a NM archeological mystery, Come In and Cover Me by Gin Phillips.
 
See you all next month--Sally Jacobsen

Greetings, All.  Please submit nominations for the meetups in April and May.  At our last group we decided to do fiction for a while.  Not to rule out new releases, but several members expressed a preference for selections more available from the library or used/paperback.  Simply "reply" to this e-mail.

 

Happy trails/Jesus
