I Champion The Open Spaces, All Creatures Great and Small, and Humans That Cherish the Same Values

INDIAN COUNTRY MAP OF THE SOUTHWEST!


THE COLORADO PLATEAU PROVINCE DUE WEST OF THE ROCKIES!

Written under my nom de plum, RK ALLEMAN, there are some 16 books in the queue, 10 of which are now published (as of 5/21/2017). Other books will make a debut by year's end 2017. Most of these  soft cover books (including a less-expensive KINDLE e-Book format) are travel-related, informative, factual, and will appeal to discerning minds. Eleven of the books are exclusively written for the Colorado Plateau Province, otherwise known as the Four Corners Region of the Southwest (i.e., the axis points of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah due west of Cortez, CO). This unique and comprehensive series focuses on geosciences (mainly, geology, archaeology, and ecology), celebrated hiking trails, natural history (flora and fauna), and human history. Principally, the Ancestral Puebloans and their successors, the Puebloans. You might know this indigenous culture of the Plateau by the remarkable stone cities they abandoned late in the 13th-century: Betatakin, Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Comb Wash and Comb Ridge, Hovenweep, Kiet Siel, Mesa Verde, Walnut Canyon, Wupatki, and dozens of others.

My Internet Bookstore: The below-listed books are published by Amazon's affiliate publisher, Createspace.com, and touted as the best source to procure my books. That said, authors depend on evaluations by readers because it's the only means to get noticed by the public and gain a presence on the Web. When ordering, please always write a review.

Appreciate you dropping by my site. Given my eclectic background and essentials, there is an abstract bio at the bottom of the page (embedded URL), including an e-mail contact if you have questions, concerns or something you want to add that you think will benefit my writings.
