Just finished reading Preston/Child’s Thunderhead, a thriller set in the mysterious canyons of the desert Southwest. Thrills. Chills. And sherds. Lots of potsherds.
New words: kiva; Quivera.
Forrest Fenn is listed in the Acknowledgements. You’ll see why if you read it.
Will I sleep tonight? Yes. Well, maybe.
Will I wander the canyons in the Southwest? Not on your life.
I also picked up Treasure Island at the library since it’s mentioned in Fenn’s The Thrill of the Chase . I don’t think I ever read it as a kid. I see that there is a Skeleton Island on the treasure map, and, (yes, I peeked at the ending which I rarely ever do), there is a cave — filled with all manner of gold and such.
