Painted Horses by Malcolm Brooks

So I finished this book last night.  I was hooked immediately after the first few pages because the main character is an Archaeologist and a female to boot!   The setting is post WWII, my favourite time period.  This book seemed to have everything, a strong heroine, a lovestory and even Cowboys and Indians.  The author definitely did his homework with authentic cowboy jargon, and detailed imagery of the beauty of the wild horse.  It was delious food for thought.
