Good product -- I realize that it's focus were the national parks & monuments, I just wish that it covered more of the state... I gave this as a gift to an Iraqi with whom I served.

I live in the Phoenix Metro area, and we love to explore Arizona. This book explodes the myth that Arizona is full of dusty sameness, showing beautiful photographs of incredible spots.

This book will lure you to Arizona's national parks. Going park by park, McNamee examines the history of the area, what makes it so unique, some other things to see in the vicinity, and then photographs.

Well worth keeping in your guest room.
