In Where The Ground Is Even, readers join a band of uniquely diverse sojourners, each with his own agenda, who converge on the small town of Flagstaff, Arizona, in the days before Christmas of 1881. Three Navajos ride from the east toward a white man's world of which they are suspicious. Two carefree but pining sheepherders walk through heavy snow from the west. A young family, the man wounded and the woman full with child, move north desperately ahead of a rage-filled cattleman and his men. A young, rakish deputy sheriff rides up from the southwest in pursuit of a wanted man. All converge at the foot of the San Francisco Mountains where their lives become forever intertwined. Set in 1881 with a rugged "western" flair, this 271-page novel presents a fresh perspective on the Christmas story. Well researched and written in a no-nonsense style, Where The Ground Is Even reflects a masterful blend of a "classic western" with a deep understanding of the true nature of strength and love and the ultimate grace of God. "I just read Armour's book... in one sitting. It's a great, heart-warming tale. He does gunfights about as well as anyone I've ever read--and that's quite a few gunfights and battles." Marvin Padgett, Vice President-P&R Editorial "Presenting the gospel story through a 'mass' said by a Catholic, Franco-Mexican lawman was one of the best touches I have ever seen anywhere." Dr. Paige Patterson, President SWBTS.
