Shooting the Sun by Max Byrd

Shooting the Sun tells a story centering around an 1840 expedition to photograph a total solar eclipse from the mostly unexplored American Southwest. Funding the trip is Charles Babbage, trying to raise more funding for his Difference Engine, the first digital computer, which predicted the solar eclipse. The photographer, and only woman, in the expedition is Selena Cott, a beautiful combination of strength, directness, and femininity. The four men with here all appear to have their own agenda. Needing to arrive in a specific location with precision scientific and photographic equipment, the group becomes lost and surprised as to the true nature of their exploration. Max Byrd has written another historical novel to receive positive reviews. The Denver Post says of Shooting the Sun, "The novel is a winner."
