Exquisite color photos of the Escalante and the Paria river canyons and the adjacent plateaux into which these rivers, with the help of rain & wind, have sculpted surreal, brightly colored galleries. The pictures rank with the very best ever made of this much-photographed region. The text by Charles Bowden is well crafted; but it deals not with the geology but with Mormon heroes, the Hole-in-the-Rock migration, and with John D. Lee, infamous for his part in the Mountain Meadows Massacre. One can forgive the misguided text for Dykinga's extraordinary artistry. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
