really liked it

I'm a sucker for biographies and suspense novels -- and this one delivers both. The story is fascinating and includes Yosemite National Park as a key character. The book tracks the life and disappearance of Randy Morgenson, a long-time back woods ranger in Yosemite. Morgenson literally grew up in Yosemite ... his father worked in the administrative offices and the family had a home in Yosemite Valley. The story of the family is well developed and includes accounts of their unlikely friendships with Ansel Adams and Wallace Stegner.

Blehm does drag the story out a bit as he is most comfortable as a magazine story writer and seems to add a few pages toward the end to give the book more length. The first 2/3rds of the novel make up for the "fluff" and are an excellently research biography and mystery.
