Overview

Renowned wilderness writer T.H. Watkins offers a portrait of remote areas of the fragile and beautiful canyonlands of Utah. He gives us a panorama of majestic mountains, buttes, and mesas; forest views of pinon and juniper and tall mountain sage; and intimate glimpses of rivers weaving through red rock slits in the earth. Through Watkins' exquisite visual and literary images shines his deep commitment to saving treasured wildlands that were old when humankind was "yet ungraced by the breath of Creation."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The wildlands of southern Utah are a wonderland whose canyons, rock stacks, majestic buttes and mesas arguably rival the Grand Canyon in beauty. This region, endangered by mineral, timber and cattle interests, boasts a bewildering diversity of vegetation and wildlife. In this engaging photo-essay, noted historian Watkins (The Great Depression), editor of Wilderness magazine, gracefully evokes his excursions through a realm where ``stone and sky and water speak the language of memory.'' His black-and-white photography recreates the mystery and poetry of a region that, according to this eloquent brief, deserves federal protection as a designated wilderness. (Mar.)
