    1. This book is as much about staying in motels as it is about the 'New Age'. Basically it is a travelogue exploring the wacky beliefs americans in the South West have. The most interesting thing is Native Americans reaction to the new age believers who appropriate their culture. I would have been more interested if she explored more of these new age people (talked to them, rather than observe them)and less about the discomforts of staying in motels.

    2. I wanted to like this book, an account of the author's journey through the deserts of southwest US. Maybe if I had read the last chapter first, I would have had more sympathy for the author. She takes a lot of sleeping pills and junk food, lives in motels and makes fun of new age types without ever seeming to really talk to any of them for more than a couple of minutes.

    3. I did start reading this book, but it was so badly written that I gave up. The author should have heeded Mark Twain: "When you catch an adjective, kill it." Every sentence is littered with them. I don't recommend reading it!
