Publisher's Summary

A Teenage Odyssey for Adults and Mature Teenage Readers: Roger E. Carrier tells an engaging story of youth, redemption, and sexual coming of age in New Mexico. In 1971, 17-year-old Shane Russell makes a well-planned escape from a Michigan winter and sets off on a 2,000-mile adventure in search of a town that exists only between the covers of Richard Bradford's famous New Mexico novel Red Sky at Morning. Driven to recreate the nude scenes and vivid characters in Bradford's fictional town of Sagrado, Shane forever touches the lives of his widowed landlady, the detective hired to find him, and his new friends at a colorful high school deep in the Land of Enchantment. Against the backdrop of his father's death in Vietnam and life with his stepmother's new boyfriend, Shane flees the painful realities of his life. In doing so, he finds a place where bats fly and love heals the wounds of the human spirit.

    It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.

    "Terrific Coming of Age Story"

    I really enjoyed listening to "Finding Sagrado." In fact, I think it should/could win a YA literary award. This was a well-written and well performed audiobook. The protagonist Shane decides to set out on a journey that takes him to places he's never been where he meets new people, makes friends, and even enrolls in a new school while in search of the fictional town of Sagrado. It was a good coming of age story and I love that it was set in New Mexico.

    This story was richly narrated by Scott Thomas. He did a fantastic job. He did very well with the characters, differentiating them all perfectly. His accents were great. His performance was entirely enjoyable and completely flawless.

    I look forward to seeing what Roger E. Carrier does next as well as listening to more audiobooks read by Scott Thomas.

    Would you listen to Finding Sagrado again? Why?

    Absolutely. This is a wonderful story about growing up and discovery.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Honestly, I enjoyed the entire story. Wonderfully rich main character.


    What about Scott Thomas’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Thomas was brilliant. His voice transported me to Sagrado every time I picked up my earbuds. He would be fabulous narrating a Nora Roberts piece.

    "Easy Listening"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I was expecting a crazy twist, but the twist was slightly less crazy. However, it made it a nice story to listen to.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I felt pretty good about the ending.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Increased speed of talking during parts of intensity.


    Any additional comments?

    Good story about coming of age in the 60's.

    "Not Worth The Effort"

    Not worth the effort of downloading and booting it up on my ipod. It is actually annoying
