Martha Egan's collection of seven short stories transcends the limits of regionalism. In ""Carnales"", a grudge lasting generations ends with a standoff in a village cemetery. The unruly dog in ""Mutt"" helps a young silversmith learn to stand her ground. In ""Time Circles"", a trip to a ceremonial in Navajo Country encourages a woman to open both a new business and her heart. The veterinarian in ""Guapo"" rescues a dog that changes her life forever. A pair of newly arrived hippies learn to play by New Mexico's rules in ""La Ranfla"". A broken down MGB strands a college boy in a border town in ""Granny"", where local life proves to be unexpectedly seductive.
