I enjoy his writing. A thinly veiled Taos, New Mexico (I don't know how thin, since I've never been there). By the way, John-Nichols-of-1978, if you think that America has gotten to shallow, narcissic and conservative, it's only going to get worse in the next 35 years!
Read this so long ago I don't remember much, but do remember it being very funny.

-- Los Angeles Times Book Review
"An epic scope, a wide-screen background, a large and varied cast of charming eccentrics and truly rotten villains."
-- The Washington Post
"Nichols makes us yearn for heroes, saviors of the land, preservers of stability, natural beauty, integrity of relationships among friends, spouses, parents, and children."
-- The Cleveland Plain Dealer
