This was originally reading log to share with teachers. It has evolved into both a reading log and some essays connection my reading to contemporary issues and my personal travels. My reading is very eclectic as you will see.

Year of the Horse by Justin Allen
Allen is a graduate of Borah HS and Boise State University. I picked up this book because it was recommended to me by one of his classmates. I would not normally chose a "cowboy" book to read. The settings are "imaginary"--you have to sort of invent where these spots might be in the US. Through the book there is an increasing "magical" or "mystical" tone.
