Publishers Weekly, 1997-11-10 Three unlikely companions are thrown together on a harrowing journey in this unabashedly far-fetched picaresque yarn of the American West set in 1862. Kidnapped from her home in Tibet and brought as a prostitute to an Idaho mining town, Buddhist nun Sun Moon is on the run from a would-be-pimpćand an even more dangerous would-be client, Porter Rockwell, "leader of the Danites, the Mormon secret police." Then she meets Asieća half-breed Indian in search of his roots after a near-death experience in a flash-floodćand British soldier, spy and explorer Sir Richard Burton, who's on a secret mission to meet Brigham Young. Together, these three visit Salt Lake City, silver-rich Virginia City (where local journalist Samuel Clemens befriends them) and Lake Tahoe, which holds special answers for Asie. Throughout, Blevins's unflagging imagination and historical tidbits help him round even the most fanciful turns in this unusual tale. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
