Publisher's Summary

For the first time in recorded history, the complete short stories of the infamous Chinle Miller have been compiled in a book that the publisher hopes won't get anyone arrested (especially the publisher). Come sit around the campfire with an archaeologist after he unwittingly brings a unique curse upon himself; watch Ernie, the county road supervisor, accidentally bomb his own highway shed; discover a cryptic form of rock art just in time for it to save your life; and discover how a Navajo uses a Hopi rain dance to start a fire in a gated development, shutting it down before it can even be built. This book has it all: epic plane crashes, albino grizzly bears, accidental movie stars, runaway rednecks, wild Aussies, and even uranium miners with vanity plates on their old Dodge Power Wagons. And you'll meet Annie, the sweet little old lady who unknowingly foils an attempt to open a cyanide pit gold mine. As a bonus, you'll discover the possible fate of Everett Ruess, the young artist who went missing in the canyons many years ago. But best of all, included are the only known writings of Cactus Rat and Yeller Cat, two of the world's finest and, shall we say, most unique, desert rats. Generously described as eco-humor, anything is fair game for Chinle's understated tongue-in-cheek writing. You'll love seeing the underdogs win for once, and if nothing else, you'll be left with a book you can innocently pass on to your favorite corrupt nature-hating developer or politician.

    This was a fun read!It's hard to describe.It is a bunch of short stories combined to make a book.It flows nicely and is full of funny and incredible moments.
    Richard Henzel does a great job with narration.
