Canyons of the Southwest
A Tour of the Great Canyon Country from Colorado to Northern Mexico
The canyons of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico contain some of the most dramatic landscapes in the world. John Annerino's pictorial celebration of this visually rich region is a handsome memento for those who have heard the wind whistling in these haunting canyons, and a beckoning invitation for those who have not yet made the journey.
Annerino has spent much of his adult life exploring this territory—as wilderness runner, adventurer, and photojournalist—and combines his firsthand knowledge with his expertise as a nature photographer and author to create an intimate portrait of these timeless places. Accompanying the photographs are informative essays describing the region's geological and human history.
Publishers Weekly"A stunning coffee-table book. . . . The accompanying essays are authoritative and upbeat." Booklist"Geologically venerable, resonant with human history, stunningly beautiful, these are certainly among our most imposing and seductive natural environments. Annerino's paean to them is handsome and thoughtful." Los Angeles Times
