A fascinating, eloquent study of the ancient people and terrain of the dramatic high rock plains of Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico, from the author of Cycles of Rock and Water.From the Back Cover:
It is one of the most awe-inspiring regions on earth. Bottomless canyons, fierce rivers, sky-scraping mountains, and ancient peoples populate the United States desert Southwest in a stunning and seemingly random collage. In Four Corners, Kenneth Brown embarks upon a fascinating odyssey through this mysterious and beautiful region, writing about the people who rose and fell there, the subtle geological forces that sculpted the landscape, and the delicate yet enduring ecosystem that sustains life across the often brutal terrain. Brown journeys across the Four Corners region on foot and by air, weaving a fascinating portrait of the cultural, natural, and geological histories that have created the unique landscape that exists today. From four-story pueblos carved into sheer stone cliffs and a mountain peak where snow covers the ground for all but three months a year to an ancient midnight Holy Week ceremony in a modern Spanish village, Four Corners is a compelling exploration of one of the world's great treasures.
