    Don't mistake this for that other novel with a similar title - this book is a complete treat to read, especially if you care about Arizona history, complicated relationships, or the hardships of living 100 years ago. Or, if you love the great craft of storytelling. Janet Burroway creates characters complex and curious, and she has a knack for evoking a love of the desert and the American west while at the same time nodding her head at the prickers, dust, and heat, like we're all in on the joke to Don't mistake this for that other novel with a similar title - this book is a complete treat to read, especially if you care about Arizona history, complicated relationships, or the hardships of living 100 years ago.

This was a great read.

    I really enjoyed this read. I was a little put off at first at the references to surgery. I will admit the first few chapters of surgical directions left me squeamish. Once I got over it, I became caught up in the beauty of Burroway's writing. I definitely recommend this book.

    I bought this by accident (online/used/cheap). I think there's a reason for everything so I'm reading it. It turned out to be a good old salty story that was very entertaining.

    What a great serendipitous find- I was looking to reserve Cutting for Stone and accidently reserved this novel instead, and really really liked it.the author is sort of like a grown-up Jessamyn West.
