I enjoyed it but did not feel that I was reading a Louis L'Amour novel. I've read most of his Westerns and two or three collections of his short-stories. This was DIFFERENT, but did not feel like Louis. But I enjoyed it anyway.

A western that isn't a western
L'amour has written over 100 western stories, but this book is not one of them. The only thing western about this book is the local: the Southwest's Four Corners area. Erik Hokart has decided to build a home on the top of a remote mesa in the desert. Erik is a wealthy man who is also somewhat of a loner. He is going to build the home himself from native rock that is everywhere. Strange things begin to happen, and Erik is frightened. Erik writes to a friend, Mike Raglan, who amoung other things is an internationaly renown investigator of unexplained phenomena. By the time Mike can get to the Utah/Arizona area where Irik is building his home, Erik disappears. This story is all wrapped up in the disappearance of the cliff dwellers called Anasazi, by the Navajo's, in the 13th century. L'amour weaves a great deal of fact and fiction together that makes a very believable story as to their disappearance. Do you believe in parallel worlds? You might after you read this book. Enjoy. I certainly did.
