Library Journal Review

Prolific author and photographer Annerino returns to the theme of most of his previous books, the canyons of the Southwest. The beauty and exultation expressed by the cover photograph will be sufficient to entice many to look more closely at this slender volume. Annerino briefly explains the physiography, biogeography, geology, and history of canyons in Arizona, Baja California, Colorado, Mexico, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah, awing us with an avalanche of figurescanyon length, depth, and square mileagebut concluding with simplistic advice to prospective canyoneers. This is more of an introduction than a genuine exploration of the subject. Some of Annerinos books for the Sierra Club (Canyons of the Southwest, 1993; The Wild Country of Mexico, 1994) explore much of the same subject matter in greater detail; this volume recycles several photographs from the earlier books. Recommended only for public libraries with large travel/adventure collections.Janet N. Ross, Washoe Cty. Lib. Sys., Sparks, NV (c) Copyright 2010.
