of this book is set in Canyon de Chelley National Monument on the
Navajo Reservation. It is one of the most spiritual places I have
ever visited, one of the oldest and one of the most alive. If you're
thinking of visiting the Southwestern US, include it on your itinerary.
I dedicated this book
to those who sacrificed everything so we could see the stars. If
you're like me, you remember where you were and what you were doing
when the Challenger's O-ring failed.
The theme of this book,
accepting random tragedy, was much in my mind after the events of
9-11. -- Karin
