Intriguing note of interest: Thin moon Cold Mist has an introduction that shows the achievements of women of the west, from Colorado, Wyoming, California... etc... Pretty cool start no pun intended. .
This is a remarkable story that opens the readers eyes to the history expressed in a way I never would have expected. As a lover of history I would have to say in the battle of the states, between north and south my sympathy has favored the north greatly. Kathleen in this book has shown me the other

The Gears are the best at what they do, which is writing about pre-history based on archeology, creating a plausible fictional story to help us to understand the facts and thus preserve our own Native American history.

It's putting me to sleep. I can only get through about three pages a night. I would have thrown it away by now, but my friend recommended it so I'm trying to slog through for her sake.

I did not finish this book as I found it hard to get into. I did read quite a ways into it but got bored.

My professional life began in the dark basement of the Museum of Cultural History in Los Angeles, where I was cataloguing three-hundred-year-old Guatemalan saint carvings. I quit this fascinating job and moved to Wyoming to work for the U.S. Department of the Interior as a historian and archaeologist. When I finally understood the error of my ways I moved to Wyoming and started writing books. Sinc ...more
