Title: two near misses
Post by: bbbrain on December 02, 2008, 10:19:42 AM
   i've recently finished two books which don't actually take place in big bend national park, but come close.  william least heat-moon passes through part of the big bend country in his travels around the country in Blue Highways.  it's an excellent read.  and God's middle finger: into the lawless heart of the sierra madre - is an interesting account of one man's journey south of the rio grande.  for general reading enjoyment, i can also recommend the early tony hillerman mysteries - which all take place in the southwest.
