Text by Rose Houk, photographs by Michael Collier 272 pages, hardcover $49.95. Arizona Highways Books, 2003.
If you can tear yourself away from the spectacular photos — including some mind-numbing aerial shots (see page 14) — to read the accompanying words, you will be rewarded. In this chunky coffee-table book, Houk and Collier divide the state into its mountain ranges, dissect the landscape and tell its stories. The photos of the Chuska and Lukachukai Mountains on the Navajo reservation — where tourists and Anglo hikers aren't allowed — will make desert lovers drool.
