What other readers are saying about this title:
Two young sisters from a tiny Colorado River plateau tribe navigate survival in a turn-of-the-twentieth-century story. One, Sister Salt, comes of age in the camps supporting the building of the water diversion canal that will take water to LA; another, Indigo, finds herself ‘befriended’ by Hattie and botanist Edward, a recently married ‘enlightened’ couple about to embark on a trip to Italy and Corsica. And, yes, gardens, gardens, gardens are everywhere. This book strives a little hard with too many story lines and too much scholarly information about ancient religions and plant propagation. I felt I was either in a feminist, religion or botany class! And, that’s not even half of it! I found it fascinating though as I’m an avid gardener and loved Indigo for her fierce love of family, animals and plants.
