But with all the obstacles, it may take us a while to set aside some land. Name: After an early trader, Arthur Newcomb. The area is also sometimes known as "Nava. History: Newcomb is a relatively new chapter, having broken off from Two Grey Hills in after residents were frustrated by the distance to the chapter house and their difficulty getting services. But it certainly is not a new area in terms of human habitation, built on the site of a major Chacoan village.
Points of interest: Bennett Peak 6, feet and Ford Butte 6, feet , twin volcanic plugs across the highway from each other, provide an imposing entrance to the chapter.
There are numerous Anasazi ruins and, on the spring equinox, the area attracts Chacophiles who watch the sun rise from one of the sites. Meanwhile, this chapter 22 miles from Farmington via the recently paved short cut through Burnham and 58 miles from Gallup already has a lot more amenities than most.
There is education: Head Start through high school; a spacious senior citizens center with a flat screen TV and a pool table; and a thriving veterans organization that likes to give back to the community. Currently the group is procuring welcome signs for Newcomb.

Written in the style of American classics like the Little House series we get to follow the life of a family - we hear about their holiday traditions, their joy and sorrows, their schooling, their friendships and relationships, and - my favourite parts - the running of the farm. I've always been utterly fascinated by all the every-day chores that came with running a farm years ago, and the work necessary for setting away food to last through the winter.
The Year of Plenty is one of those books you sink down into, and it's almost torture to have to come back out again.

I came to care about all the members of the family, and wanted to hear more about what happened to them. Rebecca Brammer shows an incredible gift for in-depth characterisations and creating an atmosphere with her words. Her writing seems effort-less and the plot tight. I hope to meet the Fraley family again in future books from this talented writer.
