This books is a precursor showing why Anna Pigeon became the ranger we know her to be. Having found improbable scenes in a number of the other books, this one surpasses them all. It was captivating reading to see how she got out of one impossible desert national park death-inducing situation af...

So why do I read Nevada Barr? She writes these little whodunit murder mysteries set in National Parks that are mostly fun little reads. As a former NPS employee, she captures the park service culture very well, which adds to the amusement, because that is one of the cultures I live in. She is a...

This addition to the Anna Pigeon series really reminded me of A Superior Death, which I thought was disappointing. Beautiful setting with less than inspiring mystery plot and too many characters to keep straight.As with all of Barr's novels that I've read, the setting is the most important charac...

OK as a mystery. Fabulous audiobook narrator. Bad recording equipment.I BOUGHT THIS BECAUSE OF THE AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:Authors: one way to get people to read your books is to have a great narrator. The best ones have fans. I wanted to buy more books narrated by Barbara Rosenblat, and this was ...

The book ended and I was clicking the Next Page button on the Kindle in the futile hope the device had just lagged and there was still another chapter left to go.To that, Miss Barr, I say "Harrumph!" I don't trust you to follow through in the next books with the direction you suddenly took it ne...

While I was working on my MA in history, I spent two glorious summers at a provincial park. I spent my time creating and delivering historical and ecological programs, and hanging out in nature.I saw a lot of those summers reflected in this book. The patrol horses. The relationships between seaso...

Anna Pigeon is currently one of my favourite characters in literature and it feels like she's been through a lot since I first met her on the Track of the Cat in Texas nine books ago. In this book she's mostly lucid and sane and it's really comforting to see her coping with the world and not put...

Despite the existence of an elderly female character who defecates in a graveyard, I am only able to give this one star. It was headed for a blazing two stars until I found an unforgivable punctuation error: it's for its. This is the first time I have ever seen an error this egregious in a prin...
