Through shards of ancient pottery, we catch glimpses of nineteenth-century homesteaders and even of native Americans a millennium before them.Now, in ''The Clay Endures", we learn what drove Esperanza and Armando to stake a claim on the lonely ridge where Anna will turn up her pot. Esperanza's struggle to survive in an all-but [...]

    4. I wanted to read The Clay Endures by Sharon K. Miller because the book's setting is the Sonoran Desert in Southeastern Arizona, where I have been living for the past three years. I am just now learning the area's history, and thought the fictional book would add some flesh and bone to my research of the historical facts.Miller's book is set in the mid-1860s, a period just after the Civil War has ended, and an era when the Apache Indians in Arizona were at war with all who trespassed on what they [...]

    5. I won a copy of the book through .The book is an accurate portrayal of life on the fringes of Apache territory in the 1860s. The couple, Armando and Esperanza, begin married life as landholders under the new Homestead Act. It shows the hardships of life in the Arizona desert outside of the city. Raising cattle & needing to protect them from the Apache. Raising chickens & needing to protect them from hawks & coyotes. Raising crops but needing to return to the city to get staples like [...]

    6. This is a sweet love story between two people. It takes place in the desert in Arizona in the aftermath of the Civil War. Although there is nothing in this book that would keep a middle school age child from reading it, there is also enough to keep the interest of an adult. After courtship and marriage, Armando, the husband, decides to claim land by living on it for a certain number of years. Esperanza, his wife and main character in the story, comes along with him. She is often left alone on th [...]

    7. This is a story of young love and their dreams for building a future in the 1860s. The story is created around a historical site just north of Tucson in the Catalina Mountains. Being a recent transplant to this area, I enjoyed the historical information. Apaches were a threat to the settlers, raiding their cattle and wounding and killing the people. The young bride, Esperanza, stayed on the homesteaded land when her husband would go to Tucson for business and supplies. She lead a lonely existenc [...]

    8. Pleasure ReadingAfter reading and enjoying The Clay Remembers, I searched for the second book in the series. I was not disappointed with The Clay Endures. I was easily swept into the story. I had trouble putting the book down! I felt like I was at the homestead along with Armondo and Esperanza. I cried along with the tragedy. I didn't want the story to end!

    9. I received this book in a giveaway. I enjoyed this book although I had a real hard time finding the husband likable. He cared more for his dream than the people in his life. I did not find his selfishness appealing. This is a good read for readers who are interested in the west and stories of early settlers.
