    The Southwest: New Mexico and Arizona is a guidebook with gorgeous pictures and better than expected text by Jake Page (who also wrote some of my favorite mysteries-The Deadly Canyon, Stolen Gods, and The Knotted Strings-featuring a blind sculptor as detective and set in New Mexico). If I were not obsessed with New Mexico (and hoping to someday live there) I undoubtedly would have passed on this book but I'm grateful I did not.

The text minutely describes the geography of New Mexico and Arizona, along with some tidbits of history and other interesting information. The maps are extremely helpful and the pictures stunningly complement the text. I began to feel as though I were actually there! A very pleasant reading-as-vacation diversion. I especially recommend it to anyone actually interested in visiting these places.

    Better than your average guide book. Beautifully illustrated with clear concise descriptions of all the best sights, including villages as well as National Parks. The nice thing about combining the two states is including those great places that lie on either side of the border like Canyon deChelly, Shiprock, Monument Valley, and one of my favorite places in the four corners area Hovenweep. Great book to have along even if you know your way around. The maps and directions are easy and correct (t Better than your average guide book.

    This series is informative, with excellent, often spectacular, photography.

    The Guide to Natural America is not as fun to read as Historic America, but still a good place to start when exploring a new area. The pictures, as always, are amazing!
