A funny thing happened on the way to the Grand Canyon: Laura Byrne Paquet took a side trip and discovered an eerie, silent and fascinating historic site in the desert. And then had delicious Navaho tacos for lunch.
Laura Byrne Paquet's first encounter with the written word was not auspicious: her birth announcement appeared in the newspaper classifieds under the heading "Livestock for Sale."
