Description: SPECS: Size: 8.25" x 11.5" (21 cm x 29.2 cm) tall Pages: 208 on Grade A paper; printed from film plates Cover: Soft with 6" flaps for durability and use as place-holders THE SOUTHWEST INSIDE OUT: An Illustrated Guide to the Land and Its History, by Thomas Wiewandt and Maureen Wilks, is a concise and colorful overview of southwestern landscapes--what they are, where they are, and how they came to be. This book is packed with visual and factual surprises, revealing the unexpected geology and history found within the astonishing beauty of the American Southwest. It's richly illustrated with 315 color photographs, 33 drawings, and seven customized maps, including a folded tear-out road map. The text blends travel tips, Native American legends, prehistoric and historic vignettes, and non-technical explanations of earthly processes and events that have shaped land, people, and wildlife. Supporting resources help outdoor adventure-seekers plan their travels: websites, photographic tips, and annotated listings for 61 books and 100 scenic attractions (including notable sites outside of the parks), supported by a comprehensive 8-p index. Unlike most books on the American Southwest, this one covers a broader region--the Greater Southwest--defined more by natural features of desert and canyon country than by political boundaries. So the book includes much of southern California, western Texas, western Colorado, and parts of northern Mexico, in addition to Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and New Mexico--a great benefit to travelers.
