From Barnes & Noble
Graphic Arts' fully redesigned state book series debuts with this stunning hardcover pictorial celebration of the Grand Canyon State by veteran landscape photographer David Muench. His sun-drenched images of Arizona's desert fauna, wildlife, and majestic landforms take us far beyond state highways and city streets. Almost mystical in its beauty.

Read an Excerpt

"I recently came across a copy of the log of the first air-driven boat up the Colorado River in Glen Canyon... July 3, 1938...Passengers Josef Muench, Joyce R. Muench and David Muench.  I was twelve. It was a six mile hike to Rainbow Bridge. Twenty-one years after that excursion, Glen Canyon was drowned beneath Lake Powell. My trip, which can never be repeated, became a part of history, while Glen Canyon now exists only in the photographs of my father and other early Arizona photographers, and as memory, one more part of the human-altered landscape."

From the Introduction by David Muench
