At age 55 the author and his wife, a college professor, trade burn-out for glory on a pure leap of faith. Life in a high mountain village bears no resemblance to the world they left behind, and New Mexico is famous for plans not working like they would elsewhere. In the 21st-century American Southwest, there's a bull in the window and a rat under the bed. John and his wife dodge gunshots at Christmas, sink in mud to the axles, and find human bones in the dirt. Along the way he meets a shaman, Buddhist monks, knife-toting tough guys, a guru mechanic, Jesus himself, and the devil's own dogs.Pulling up stakes and heading for another place was easier in the old days, he thought. ... sprayers, pruning saws, shovels, hoes, ladders, buckets, tire chains, a battery charger, car tools, jacks, ramps, steel pry-bars, nails, screws, and brads.
