This is a very traditional/untraditional novel. On the surface,it follows the lives of two brothers, close in age, who are bitter rivals in the end. We have the biblical Cain and Able reborn in the bodies of Billy and Bruce Aben. Bruce is the good brother. Single, middle class, with a white collar job, he leads a perfectly contented life in New York City. He takes two vacations a year, has his patented circle of friends and treasures playing the classical guitar. He prides himself on being the most decent person he knows. Billy on the other hand is the ultimate rebel. He hates middle class values; he abhors surrounding himself with comfort. The world to him is one big sham. Morality is for morons like his brother Bruce. The only thing that matters is making a quick buck any way you can; commodity trading, stock manipulation, outright theft are all permissible in Billys world. So there you have the brothers. One can only imagine their interaction. Brothers Of The Four Corners is a serious book with comedic overtones. There are elements of insanity combined with rivetting action/adventure sequences. The novel juggles a variety of issues simultaneously like: a family gone wrong; mans loneliness and alienation; religious intolerance; financial charlatanism and racketeering; racism in the guise of humanitarianism; and international espionage. In the end, these elements intertwine toward a twisted end. This makes for a really good read that will take you on a journey thats never boring.

The town itself was one that stood at the foot of Virginia's blue mountains. The house where the Corners lived was on the edge of the town, facing a street which ended at the front gate. At the side of the garden another long street wound its way uphill and was called the old County Road when it began to go down grade. The house was a rambling old affair which had not been painted for some years and was, therefore, of an indescribable hue. One wing was shut up, but the remainder was made excellent use of by four lively girls, of whom the eldest was Nancy Weston. She was variously known as Nan, Nance or Nannie, though she greatly preferred Nannette and sometimes stealthily signed herself so. When she was, as her Cousin Phil expressed it, "on the bias," he often delighted to tease her by calling her Sharp Corner, but her Aunt Sarah often declared that West Corner suited her perfectly since from that quarter sprang up the briskest, as well as the most agreeable, of breezes.

This is the second book in a series by Dunmire and Tierney exploring native plant uses. The book emphasises prehistoric uses of plants in the Four Corners area, focusing on Mesa Verde National Park, Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Aztec Ruins, Hovenweep, and other major sites of the region once occupied by the Navajo, Ute, Paiute, Hopi, and Apache peoples. Dunmire and Tierney are able to eloquently illustrate the importance of the people-plant relationship that has existed throughout the ages among native peoples and how ancient traditional uses of these plants inform contemporary uses today. Through vignettes of background information drawn from lore and cultural traditions and interviews with tribal elders, 'Wild Plants and Native Peoples of the Four Corners' describes uses for edible, medicinal, and dye plants, as well as plants used for making baskets, tools, and shelters. Complementing these essays are profiles of fifty new trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, and grasses common to traditional Native America.
