Library Journal Review

Since moving to the Southwest in the 1960s, Miller (On the Border, Arizona: The Land and the People) has been inspired to write about the Sunbelt. This new release gains momentum as it progresses through personal anecdotes, research, and newsworthy events both past and present. The balanced coverage touches on both the beauty of the desert and the plight of illegal immigrants. We learn about Eco-raiders who combat urban sprawl, Walter Swan's one-title bookstore, and the art of cockfighting. Residents, potential visitors, and armchair travelers alike will be captivated by Miller's informative and often humorous book, in which the romance and reality of the Southwest are intermingled within a fine narrative.DJo-Anne Mary Benson, Osgoode, Ont.
