Book Description: Get ready for a Grand Canyon tour de force by award-winning author Mary Connealy. Gabe Lasley and Shannon Dysart are an unlikely pair. He’s an aimless wanderer who wants nothing other than to be left alone. She’s a fearless female determined to find a city of gold. When they are forced together the mayhem begins. As they set out to find the treasure, trouble is hot on their trail. Will the dream of gold color every decision Shannon makes? Will Gabe fail yet another helpless female in his life?
My Review: Shannon Dystart's father swore to a lost city of gold on his deathbed and Shannon is determined she will find it. However, she is literally stranded on the top of a 100 foot cliff dwelling. The help she hired has run off with her map, shot the rungs off of the ladder (her only way down) and run off to find "her" gold. What is a girl to do?!?!
Gabe Lasley is on his way to visit one of his seven brothers when he hears a cry for help. It takes him a little while to realize that the call for help is coming from the top of the cliff. With a little imagination and using his roping skills Gabe "eases: Shannon off the cliff. When Shannon finally gets on the ground the two set off for a Navajo village to regroup and reassess her mission.
Meanwhile, Shannon's mother, is at home in St. Louis trying to persuade Shannon's intended, Buckstone (Bucky) Shaw, to go find her, bring her home and marry her. Finally Bucky takes some men and off he goes in search of Shannon.
When Gabe sends a telegraph to his brother Abe, telling him he will be late in arriving, Abe sets off with his own search party looking for Gabe and this mysterious woman he is helping. As these four groups of treasure seekers come to the Grand Canyon, each group takes a different path down into its depths, some in search of gold, some in pursuit of other searchers and some in pursuit life's true treasures. Navigating the canyon is a treacherous, exciting and sometimes humorous journey.
