About this title


Writer Sunnie Empie and photographer Hart W. Empie reveal what it's like to live in the Boulder House, which was designed around an enormous outcrop of weathered granite that sheltered inhabitants from the Stone Age up to about 700 years ago. The text and about 150 color photographs describe the planning and building of the house as well as the Empies' appreciation of the high Sonoran Desert in Arizona, where ancient symbols carved into the rock connect the viewer to the cosmology of the first people in the American southwest. Oversize: 10x12.25<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

From the Author:

Few people have the opportunity and privilege of a long-time relationship with a sacred place and to witness and capture on film over a period of twenty-five years, the changes in landscape, weather, and the revelations of the site that have made possible the varied and profound selection of images. —Photographer Hart W. Empie
