Item description for America's Southwest by Marcella Colombo...
A land of rugged, even outrageous beauty, the American Southwest is the site of legends and historical events as bold as the land itself. This book, with its gorgeous photography-including many aerial shots- takes us on a journey through a land that embodies the very sinews of American spirit.Vast blue skies unfolding over geologic formations striated in red, ochre, and black: immense canyons, snow capped mountains, natural arches, these geological wonders are hard to fit in a camera lens, unless you have Colombo's skill. The history of the West explodes from her images and text; after all, this is the land of Geronimo and the Apaches, the Spanish missionaries, the Mormon settlers, gold miners, traders on the Santa Fe Trail, and Billy the Kid. It is also the site of a great prehistoric tribe, the Anasazi, which mysteriously disappeared at the height of its cultural achievement in the thirteenth century.Here are her portraits of beautiful US cities like Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, and Denver. The whole Southwest lies before your eyes in these splendid pages, and you are invited to experience the adventure.
