Pure Land: A True Story of Three Lives, Three Cultures and the Search for Heaven on Earth
Part true crime and part memoir, Pure Land tells the story of the most brutal murder ever recorded in Grand Canyon's history. It forges a connection between two women in search of their true nature, who found transcendence in the West's most spectacular landscapes. It is also a tale of how child abuse leads to violence and destroys lives. And it is, ultimately, a story of healing.
Author Annette McGivney is the longtime Southwest Editor for Backpacker magazine and a Journalism professor at Northern Arizona University.
