“David Yetman’s Natural Landmarks of Arizona is one man’s recollection of cherished landmarks accumulated over a lifetime of roaming the southwestern United States. Yetman inspires readers to revisit some of Arizona’s iconic landscapes with fresh eyes and a renewed interest in the processes that shape the mountains, canyons, valleys, and volcanoes of Arizona. It will make a welcome addition to the libraries of those who admire the beauty of Arizona’s multifarious terrain—from northeastern Arizona’s Navajo Mountain laccolith to the sunbaked, barren Kofa Mountains near Yuma, Arizona.”—Michael Conway, geologist
