Curva Peligrosa travels from southern Mexico to Canada on the Old North Trail, following a quest to create her own Eden and find the elixir to eternal life.



Short Summary

Curva Peligrosa descends on Weed, AB, a vision from a surrealistic western with two parrots, glittering gold tooth, turquoise rings, flat-brimmed black hat, rifle, and six-shooters. After twenty years traveling the Old North Trail from Mexico to Canada, she seeks the elixir for eternal life.

An illegal, Curva marries Billie One Eye, chief of the Blackfoot tribe, so she won’t have to leave Canada. This isn’t the end of the story, of course. She’ll continue her search for immortality and will find it in her readers' imaginations.
