Thus, the kind of text written for readers desiring to know and learn more, and not just those who are interested in the scenery. Moreover, the literary contents of each destination explain everything in a straightforward manner.

Like an A to Z encyclopedia, Scenic Icons of the Southwest text can be read cover-to-cover or piecemeal. To cut down on printing costs, Bitly URL’s are embedded in all destinations and meant for readers having access to the Internet. These seven-digit codes correlate to Google images, graphics, charts, and illustrations presented in every destination. Included in the text are six addenda of subject matter, whose subject matter is more specialized (i.e., more details).

While there are scores of books written about the Southwest and America’s unique geographic and topographic setting, to my knowledge, none are as comprehensive and factual as Scenic Icons of the Southwest. For those who are interested in an interpretive account of what’s behind the scenery, I believe this knowledgeable text will attract a wide reading audience.
