    This collection of stories is packed with human themes of love, deception, generational family ties, cultural confusion, our relationships with animals, all set in the unique cultural surroundings of New Mexico from 1920 to the present. Egan is a marvelous storyteller. She makes you cry, laugh, ponder, and consider yourself in the context of your world, people, animals, and cultural misconceptions.

Egan is a marvelous storyteller. She makes you cry, laugh, ponder, and consider yourself in the context of your world, people, animals, and cultural misconceptions. Though set in mysterious environs and filled with indigenous happenings, the universality of her humanity is never muddy to the reader. Mark Giles

    This was an interesting collection of stories about New Mexico. There is some diversity in the stories and I think most readers would find at least one that they liked.

    Oddly written in a style I've never read before. Each story tells a tale of heart; some funny, some crying into my pillow.
