Suspenseful and ties in with at least one other Louis L'Amour book, The Lonesome Gods.

This is the the only book written by Louis L'amour I have ever read, and undoubtedly the strangest while at the same very intriguing.

His writing technique here is not sophisticated. In this book L'amour repeats facts too frequently, as though the reader is stupid. The main character's thoughts are prominent, which isn't necessarily a drawback, but tends to become redundent while other characters, some important to the plot, remain two-dimensional.

This is one of my favorite L'Amour books. (A close second to "Last of the Breed") I've never been much of a sci-fi fan, but this book nearly got me hooked to that genre. It has a definite western flair, with time travel, mystery, history, and suspense all wrapped into one. This is a must for any L'Amour fan!

This book was a good mix of western and science fiction as it looked at southwest Native American culture and offered a parallel world explanation on the disappearance of the Anasazi people. I liked the characters and the story, but I sometimes found the plot repetitive, especially Mike's indecision about what he should do. I also would have liked more storyline set in the other world.
