Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Arizona's rugged and diverse landscape is one of Earth's most magnificent and exotic areas. In this book, beset with full-color photographs of the area, the multitalented Childs (Grand Canyon: Time Below the Rim, Crossing Paths), a naturalist, former river guide, backpacker, National Public Radio commentator, sketcher, and adventurer, takes the reader from Four Corners (where Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado meet) southward through the constantly changing, formidable countryside to the Sea of Cortes. He painstakingly describes the area's landforms and geology, rivers and streams, weather, flora and fauna, and inhabitants. The combination of his inspirational tone, his remarkable knowledge of the area, the gorgeous photographs taken by internationally recognized staff members of the Arizona Highways magazine, long-known for its stunning photography and Childs's adventurous stories will make you feel like you are exploring another planet while reading this book. For all public libraries. Melinda Stivers Leach, Precision Editorial Svcs., Wondervu, CO Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
