About the Author
J.D. Tuccille’s provocative and often witty columns on hotly debated topics including the environment, land use and forest management have appeared in publications including The Arizona Republic, The Denver Post, The Providence Journal and The Washington Times. The former editor of a popular civil liberties website, Tuccille has commented on current issues on both television and radio, and has been quoted saying unkind things about politicians and government policies in the pages of The New York Times, Salon and other publications. Tuccille is an enthusiastic explorer of the American Southwest’s deserts, mountains and forests. He lives in rural northern Arizona with his wife, Wendy, a pediatrician, their son, Anthony, and their two dogs.

Author definitely knows the area of northern Arizona and greatly describes the nature, trailways, and what it's like to be outdoors.
Highly enjoyable read, especially if you have a libertarian bent.
A quick, enjoyable read. Fun characters in an unusual situation who all, in some way, live just a hair (or three) outside of the mainstream.
My one main criticism stems from something a writing teacher once told me: You never want your good guys to be too good, or your bad guys to be too bad. In this particular case, the book succeeds at the former. As to the latter? My teacher should have added that you also don't want your bad guys to be almost unbelievably inept. This gets a bit tedious after a while, though it does provide the basis for some of the novel's more humorous bits.
All in all, a good first effort.
