'Utah and Arizona - a love affair'
Over a dozen years David kept returning to the wilderness of Utah and Arizona, drawn to a landscape that captivated him as no other place in the world had. A lover of mountains and icy wastes prior to this, David was surprised at how deeply the region entered his soul.
Here he attempts to explain and analyse the attraction of this harsh yet beautiful area, using the national parks of Arches, Saguaro, Petrified Forest, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce, Zion, and Grand Canyon, and national monuments such as Organ Pipe Cactus and Chiricahua.
David draws on historical texts, his geological training, and his months of exploring it on foot, to deliver a carefully considered appreciation of this fascinating terrain.
