About this book

Exploration of concepts of order and chaos in the universe, set among the mountains and canyonlands of northern New Mexico, the author examines radical new theories of physics and biology coming out of the Los Alamos National Laboratories and the Santa Fe Institute - and the intricate belief systems of the nearby Tewa Indians and Catholic Penitentes.
