From the Grand Canyon to Anasazi ruins, Hopi Indian reservations to ghost towns, snow-capped mountains to river valleys, Bill Weir guides you to Arizona's best places, as well as some lesser-known ones that only a native would know. Gorgeously illustrated, the guide includes hundreds of exquisite images, as well as several three-dimensional drawings-including ones for Montezuma Castle, Arizona landforms, and the fabled Route 66. A special feature are the guided driving tours, which take you down Oak Creek Canyon, through Petrified Forest National Park, and along the Coronado Trail near the Mexico border, among other routes. The state's depth of history and culture is detailed in an extensive review in the front of the book, while lengthy sidebars-featuring the Apache, the spiritual world of the Hopi, and John Wesley Powell, to name a few-are scattered throughout.
Broken into 7 regions, the visit begins with the Grand Canyon and Arizona Strip, and moves on to Northeastern Arizona, North-central Arizona, Western Arizona, South-central Arizona, Eastern Arizona, and, finally, Southern Arizona.Vom Verlag:
