Red Sky at Morning (Perennial Classics) by Richard Bradford
Red Sky at Morning (Perennial Classics)

nvigil51, June 15, 2011

I am revisiting this story for the 3rd time in my 59 yrs. The first time was probably between 1973 when I FIRST left the Army and 1974 when I returned to the Army. My first exposure was the film adaptation which the back drop being Santa Fe. The story mimic my experience when I first moved to Santa Fe as a Foster child. Although, I had grown up in Farmington and Bloomfield New Mexico from 2nd grade until 7th grade, it was in Santa Fe that I experienced coming of age and a new World, so similar to the main character. Then about 1985 I found myself in a military assignment in West Germany. One of my fellow workers had a copy of this story and allowed me to keep it, only to be pack in personal property and stored for the next 15-20 yrs. Recently IT SURFACED and I enjoy reading it as it takes me to a quieter time of life and youth. A great story that I identify personally. Thank you for this opportunity to comment.
