The Maze - A Desert Journey by Lucy Rees

Lucy Rees and her partner Rick came to Arizona from their native Wales, bought a couple of horses named Rosie and Duchess that no one else wanted, and set off through the vast desert landscape on a most unusual journey.

As Lucy writes, real journeys are neither sight-seeing tours nor holidays, but explorations of both the exterior and the interior world, offering revelations of unexpected terror and glory en route to some Holy Grail.

Rick had long been fascinated by the ancient stone carving not far from Tintagel, in Cornwall, known as the Cretan maze.  Once in the United States, visiting a friend with vague plans of going by horseback through the Southwest, Lucy and Rick were startled to learn that this same stone carving could be found on the second mesa of the Hopi in northeast Arizona.  The search for the maze announced itself as the purpose of their trek.  it became their grail, and its intricate design - the gradual spiraling inward toward an unknown center, then the retracing to emerge into the world with new knowledge - became the metaphor of their extraordinary physical and spiritual journey.

Beautifully written, both humorous and wise, this is the story of a bold adventure on horseback through red rock canyons and vast open plains.  It is also a moving account of personal tragedy, hope, and courage.
