I think that I went into this book with the wrong mindset. I'll have to read it again in a couple of weeks-and start it earlier in the day.

I wanted to like this more than I did. It isn't often that a book builds and builds and then takes TOO LONG to finish things off but that is exactly what happened in this book. I got frustrated by what felt like an eternity of finally coming to a conclusion. Also, the mystery wasn't very strong. Its not hard to keep things a mystery when you never introduce the characters or even have them play much of a part in the story.

I can swing higher than the chicken coop. The fun of picking and chewing pine gum. Or every kid ought to have a cow like Blossom. I wish I could tell you all about these and dozens of other stories about my life, but I’ll try to pick out the highlights.

I was born in a small community in the Four Corners country of the American southwest. My father was a sheepman, cattleman, rancher, and owner of a
