"Past and present come together more vividly in the hard, dry beauty of the Southwest than in any other part of America," suggests David Weber and William deBuys, who view the region here through the eyes the of explorers, missionaries, and travelers who were the first non-natives to describe them. With black and white illustrations throughout, the 15 locales profiled in this collection range from popular destinations within the National Park System—including Carlsbad Caverns, the Grand Canyon, and Mesa Verde—to the Spanish colonial towns of Santa Fe and Taos, and the living Indian communities of Acoma, Zuni, and Taos.
