One of my favourite books. 15 Jan 2013
By Marnie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I first came across this book some years ago and I'm currently rereading it with great pleasure. A Booker Prize winner (for "Schindler's List"), Thomas Keneally is one of Australia's finest writers. This non-fiction book takes us with him on his many journeys through the American southwest. His interest in and passion for this part of the world can be found on every page. With an outsider's keen eye, he takes us backwards and forwards in time from the geological formation of the region, the coming of the first Americans, the Spaniards, the Europeans and into the modern era.
I loved this book so much that my family and I will visit the southwest ourselves this year. Read it now!
