"Encounters in the Jemez" is an exciting fictional tale of two teenage young men — Kevin and Curt — and their adventures in the New Mexico Jemez (HAY-mez) wilderness two weeks before they began their senior year of high school. Kevin and Curt's adventures — and encounters — run the gamut from a Basque shepherd boy to a Native American burial ground to a black bear to a mysterious cave and an apparent time warp back to New Mexico Territory in the year 1854, a pre-Civil War U.S. Army unit and an Apache War Chief. During their adventure, Kevin and Curt each have a unique encounter with God that will stir your heart.
