The Slickrock Desert: Journeys of Discovery in an Endangered American Wilderness (Paperback)
IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award Silver Medalist
THE SLICKROCK DESERT is the story of a land unlike any other on earth. Come with author Stephen W. Hinch as he explores the mesas and the canyons of the Four Corners Region of the American Southwest-the Slickrock Desert. Along the way you will discover its history, natural history, geology, ecology, and what we know of its earliest inhabitants. And you will revel in its beauty in a series of inspiring photographs. But all is not well in this magnificent land. You will also learn of the threats from those who would destroy it forever for short-term gain, and of the work being done by dedicated individuals and groups to protect it. It is a story every lover of the American wilderness needs to know.
