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 to my good friend and co-author, Joe Maness. The new look and feel of my website is stellar.
Dave Gilmour said…
Up until several years ago, I was an avid reader. Technology has surpassed (as you put it ''paper'') and now there does not seem the time and space to enjoy a good read. I like the look of your books though, real, human-interest stories.

Dear Dave. Technology has not surpassed a good friend, a good meal, a good laugh, and esp. not a good book.

Dear Nina and David...how I wish I knew more good folks and good minds, like yours. Very encouraging and I have always been an avid 'paper' reader. Then again, I could not imagine having gone to a Ph.D. level without books (and I damn sure would have never read and researched such information electronically! Thanks for the wonderful comments (yours).
Fantastic information, history, photographs...Well done, Dr. Holtzin!

Thank you for your constant learning, and helping others, like me, learn more about these wonderful areas. Truly appreciated!

These books have to be the most comprehensive, detailed (and first-handed) account of the American southwest available! Many years of foot travel through this awe-inspiring region have finally been documented via Rich's experiences and memories. He paints a vivid picture with his descriptions and tales!
