    "Book: Iron and Steel, by Michael Hunter" Michael Hunter tells a story well, mixing the history of Santa Fe, New Mexico, a desire to know more about his dad's family, and the difficult reflections and feelings associated with meeting up with his father in New Mexico. Hunter's sense of humor and sensitivity are well balanced, keeping my wife and I interested as we read to each other; wanting to know what the author might discover about himself and a family he only knew from a childhood visit and the stories his mother told him. The history of Santa Fe is well paced and compliments the story. The contemporary experience of Santa Fe has some of the expected elements (like dining), yet there is a unique view into the life of native New Mexicans because of Pancho (the author's father), Louise (the grandmother), and Nino (the author's cousin) all whom Michael interviews and visits with while in Santa Fe. Though Michael Hunter initially sounds as though his interaction with his... More > father is more by default, the book reveals a son's natural curiosity and hope surrounding a relationship with an estranged parent. I applaud Michael's candid descriptions of his father and himself. The story "Iron and Steel" is in the least entertaining, but in my opinion it touches the heart in a way that makes us think about letting go of resentments (regardless of making a deeper connection with a family member or not) and learning something new about oneself. -artisticdonut< Less
