Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Arriving in Southwest New Mexico, itinerant bookman Jason Niles finds the town of Del Cobre almost too good to be true -- a community at ease with its modest size, rich in the heritage of an ancient culture, and uniquely in harmony with the natural world. It is an idyll that cannot last. The boomers think Del Cobre holds a different promise. And they have little sympathy for Mexican Black Hawks nesting on the edge of town, or the mysteries left behind by ancient artists. You can see it coming. And so can Jason. Inspired, and deluded, by the Ancients' lurid art, the books in which he trades, and the woman of his dreams, Jason sees an opportunity to make a difference. If he can pull it off, he can save remnants of a modern as well as a ancient culture, and even salvage something of himself.

Review:

A novel of ideas, polemical, contrary, sensual. Full of book lore and the lore of love. -- W. David Laird, Books of the Southwest

You come into this country and, before you know it, you fall in love with the ground. And then because of this love you try to possess a piece of the earth itself. Always, you end up losing the land you love. Signal to Depart captures this irresistible love and that inevitable hurt. I got caught up in it, though I dreaded the ending which I knew was inescapable. Like everyday life here, it starts as a lark and ends up somewhere near the roar of a bulldozer. Progress is our drug of choice, and so far no government has the guts to put a warning label on the bottle. -- Charles Bowden
