About the Author:

Jack W. Dykinga's photographs have been published in major magazines, and Charles Bowden is thre author of numerous non-fiction books. They collaborated on the Abeams' title, The Sonoran Desert (0 8109 2669 5)

From Library Journal:

Straddling the Utah/Arizona border, the Escalante River system and Paria Canyon were among the last areas of the continental United States to be mapped. Dykinga and Bowden, who have teamed up before (The Sonoran Desert, LJ 10/15/92), work well together. Both are residents of Tucson and share a love of the desert Southwest. Dykinga's spectacular color photographs and Bowden's overview of the natural history of the remote and rugged area make for a stunning coffee-table book on a little-known area. Also included is a brief but very beneficial annotated bibliography, most welcome because there is such a dearth of information on the region. Highly recommended for all regional collections.?Tim J.
