I Write & Publish Books For Inquisitive Minds, Like Yours!

A Candid Summary of “Dr. Rich’s Eclectic Background & Credentials:

Educator, guide & instructor, RICH HOLTZIN (also writing under “Richard Kerry Holtzin”) author’s & publishes his books. For many years, he taught geosciences (mainly geology), human history, and natural history, mostly about the Four Corners region of the American Southwest’s national parks & monuments, tribal & state parks, and the Anasazi archeological ruins. With thousands of hiking & backpacking, he has explored all of the celebrated places he writes about. Dr. Rich was also an instructor with the Grand Canyon Field Institute (educational outreach program endorsed by the NPS), as well as professoring for the likes of Northern Arizona University (Flagstaff) & Yavapai College (Prescott). For more details about Rich’s vagamundo life experiences & credentials, as well as a complete synopsis of each book, visit his AMAZON AUTHOR PAGE: https://amzn.to/2Qb3t08

PS Rich appreciates any commentary and will respond in kind if requested to do just that.

Welcome, Hola, and Yá'át'ééh to my Online Bookstore!

The genre I write & publish represents subject matter intended to entertain, engage, and enlighten readers. Most of my published works take readers on a literary sojourn to the American Southwest, featuring a plethora of National Parks, Nation Monuments, State and Tribal Parks, and archeological ruins villages long ago abandoned by the Anasazi Culture who were the first people to settle in sectors of the Colorado Plateau Province (also known as “The 4 Corners region” of the Southwest)

For nearly fifty years, I have lived, learned, and explored what has to be the planet’s most awesome landscape of scenic diversity. I also write about other subject matter. For instance, Antarctica and the Emperor Penguins; rez dogs (strays on Indian Reservations); a harrowing plane crash (my own); S.T.E.M. education (aeronautics and aerospace); and a utilitarian road tour series of the Southwest based on select tourist hubs such as Flagstaff and Kayenta, AZ; Cortez, CO; Moab, UT; and Las Vegas. Additionally, my online Bookstore includes a few human interest novels; food awareness and environmental sustainability; prose and poetry (nature and the transcendental aspects of life); a unique screenplay about a female ‘Zorro’; and a faux play on the legendary John Wesley Powell. The list of the inventory follows below and the main part of the website features select books presented on a weekly basis.

Kindly leave your comments, thoughts, and suggestions about the Bookstore’s presentation and subject matter of my published works. I would also appreciate your endorsement on a variety of social networks such as TWITTER, INSTAGRAM, LINKEDIN, and FACEBOOK.

Thanks for dropping by my website. Happy Trails wherever you wonder and wander!
