Ten miles apart, in a New Mexico desert, unknown to each other, two scientists are involved in secret work – one engaged in unearthing the past, the other in shattering the present.Darrell Reeves in uncovering an ancient and mystifyingly out-of-placeMoreTen miles apart, in a New Mexico desert, unknown to each other, two scientists are involved in secret work – one engaged in unearthing the past, the other in shattering the present.Darrell Reeves in uncovering an ancient and mystifyingly out-of-place Indian burial site.

As the delicate excavation unfolds so too does the mystery surrounding an ancient Indian king whose life - emerging bit by bit in clues - is re-created with Butlers abounding artistry.The physicist Lloyd Coulter is on the tea developing the first atom bomb. Under J Robert Oppenheimer, he develops the lens arrangement that will focus the explosive blast and bring nuclear weaponry to the world.Through the contrasting mysteries of their projects - and the woman they both love - they are brought into an astonishing confrontation.This is both scientific adventure and a dramatic love story, portrayed with the narrative power for which Robert Olen Butler is well known.‘Countrymen of Bones is such a remarkable achievement that for comparisons...is to do an injustice.

Butler’s accomplishment is all his own’Chicago Tribune
