The comfortable world of a well regarded Santa Fe, New Mexico based archaeologist is turned around by the realities of reservation life, and death, in the shadow of corporate uranium mining on Indian lands. The failure of the dominant culture to address the poison legacy of unbridled nuclear development pushes Jed Flyway into the swift undercurrent of peyote and Anasazi magic in the technicolor wilds of northern New Mexico. To travel the backroads with Jed Flyway and his Navajo love Lucy Begay is to know the everpresent potential for mystical envelopment and the ultimate value of love.
The author was born and raised in the south Florida melting pot of American culture but migrated as an eager runaway to the Golden Gate shores in the sixties. Once when he passed through northern New Mexico on his way to parts unknown, he decided to keep the state as a home base. He has worked for government agencies on the social, health, and environmental problems left in the wake of mining boom times and this allowed him to become intimate with the places and people he writes about in this novel. The overwhelming size and severity of problems associated with uranium mining in the four corners country encompassing New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Utah gave birth to the thoughts and feelings he expresses in this book.
