      There is nothing like a good story well told. Desolation is one. Written with a light touch, it is an intimate picture of life in the American southwest in the late 19th century.

Births, marriages and land deals round out the rest of the three-decades-long story arc.Has an old world charm about it, full of stocky one-dimensional characters.I received a free pdf of the book in a group for a fair, non-reciprocal review.
