I’ve missed you, Nevada Barr! Your wit, your clever use of words (including a new one: olio), your steadfast attention to detail. I accidentally checked this book out in large print (no reading glasses necessary!) so it was 583 pages long, but I still raced through it, refreshed as I was by the story-telling that only Barr can bring to a national park setting featuring her beloved Anna Pigeon. “The benefits of a reading life,” Anna thinks wryly toward the end. But, truly, reading Barr is one of the benefits of a reading life… Enjoy!
