From the Inside Flap:

Step into the world-renowned beauty and emotion-stirring environment of Sedona through this special collection of photographs and personal observations.Let them connect you with timeless Nature and ancient peoples. Season after season, Sedona's landscape - sometimes rugged , sometimes mellow, but always colorful - reveals itself to those who take the time to cherish it.In these pages, author and photographer Larry Lindahl captures more than 12 years of exploring mountains, canyons, and streams to find sacred moments in the Sedona landscapel Equipped with camera and notebook, he photographs a spectrum of vistas and relates soothing and harrowing experiences - a summer swimming hole bathed in shade; a rock-ledge encounter with a rattlesnake; hidden Indian ruins and rock art through which ancient Sinaguan people speak across the centuries; and alluring wildflowers, seasonal waterfalls, delicate snowfalls, and powerful sunsets. Like origami, his pictures and words fold together into a divers and comprehensive look at one of Earth's most beautiful places. Indeed, Sedona is more than a pretty place.From the depths of Boynton Canyon to the cliffs of Munds Mountain, you will step into moments of pure delight, sensual calm, and cliff-hanging fear. At the end, you[ll experience the sensations and spiritual renewal of a sweat-lodge ceremony.In his foreward, musician Willaim Eaton tells us: "As you begin reading this journal, remind yourself of the tens of thousands of years of human evolution when survival required that our senses by tuned to the rhythms of a complex, diverse natural world...Perhaps, before you continue, quiet your mind and recall walks you've taken in the landscape. Enjoy the adventure that is about to unfold, where this magical desert allows us a brief glimpse into eternity."
