About the Author

Author and Arizona native Gary Driggs played a key role in preserving public access to Camelback Mountain for the more than 300,000 people who climb the 1.2-mile trail to the summit each year. In this volume, Driggs has gathered more than 200 images—from such sources as the Arizona Historical Foundation, the Hayden Collection at Arizona State University, and his own private collection—to illustrate the players and events, the plant and animal life, and the geology that have made this landmark such an important part of the history of Phoenix as well as an ecological treasure.
