Five stars! San Francisco Book Review (August 2014) "A life-altering coming-of-age story filled with magic and imagination." Five Stars! Midwest Reviews, Diane Donovan (May 2014) "Those seeking powerful . . . sagas will find it engrossing." No BS Reviews in New World Authors, by Nick LeVar (June 2014) "This was one of the best novels I've read in a long time. It is a fast, easy read, and if you wish you had the nerve to live out the fantasy of your favorite characters, you would like Finding Sagrado, a title I highly recommend!" "Outstanding," Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards (2014) "A heart-warming story of a teen who . . . lives his dream and learns life lessons at the same time. It is a thoroughly enjoyable yarn, sometimes poignant, sometimes amusing, with the lightness of a fairy tale, and the gravity of a coming-of-age saga. I lived it . . . ." Portland Book Review, Aaron Michael Green (Nov. 2014) "Carrier's descriptions of the vast American backyard are Steinbeck-esque in their thorough, yet simple detail . . . . this novel is not for young eyes. It is real, it is raw, and yet, it is honest and worth anyone's time to read." John H. Manhold, award-winning fiction/non-fiction author "Carrier has written a delightfully engaging book that conjurers up thoughts on many levels far removed from the pessimistic perspective so prevalent today . . . an excellent 'coming of age' story." "A Touching Search for the Sacred," Cody John Laplante, Amazon reviewer " ." . . a great desert setting with a strong Americana feel, clever realizations, amusing dialogue, and an almost Shakespearean set of coincidences and plot twists, Carrier creates a very valuable . . . narrative about life in American during the Vietnam War." "One of those Timeless Reads," Grace Porch, Amazon reviewer " "As an avid reader (I was) expecting . . . an interesting but probably a bit shallow 'coming of age' story. In no time at all I realized 'shallow' could not have been more false . . . . I don't want to give away any of the details . . . but I love, love, LOVE the way it ended!" "Great book that hits home for anybody who has ever lost a love one," by a combat veteran "This book brought me back to all those emotions I had when I lost my father and the grief and depression that followed. Shane portrays every person that has lost someone really close to them and the struggle to move on with life . . . . As a combat veteran, I can relate . . . . An awesome emotion filled book! 2 thumbs up!" Selected for the "Albuquerque Easy Reading Parade" (Peter Kelton, March 2014) Steve Wagner, well-known Los Angeles editor: "J.D. Salinger, Richard Bradford and John Knowles are among America's better known authors who've penned some of America's better known coming-of-age novels . . . I would like to add the name Roger Carrier to that list. As long as there are teenagers, these kinds of stories will never go out of style."show more

This epic story about youth, redemption, and sexual coming of age in New Mexico has quickly found its way to my heart, and has stayed there ever since. I'm so glad I've decided to read it, and would recomend everyone to read more

This Amazing well written book was such an ispiration for me and my family. After reading it I've convinced my mother and brother to read it. We lost our father to war. We used to dread over this. This book showed us how to deal with that great loss. I am so grateful to Roger for writing this more

Feals like this book is missing some of its content.Don't get me wrong I loved the book, but it always seams like it's missing something. Some dark characters maybe, some mystery, some anticipation. Except for that little flaw, I positively loved the more

I love this book. Best book I read in a long long time. So happy that I decided to read it! I highly recommend it to everyone. Well written and thought out. Takes me back, way back and that is a wonderful place to more
by Samantha
It was an amasing book. Book that I could not let go. Once you start reading it you have to finish. You have no choice. It suckes you into its world. Excellent plot and amasing easy to relate to charachters. I began to wonder should I do the same as Shane and tried to find something I was missing in my own life. Maybe ran away to find a place of my dreams. Oh, wouldn't it be nice to find so many different people that are so happy to help you. Anyhow, I really enjoyed reading it, it was fun, easy to read. I would recomend to anyone to buy this book. You will not regret more
