With never-before-used primary sources and firsthand experience navigating Powell's legendary route, Cecil Kuhne brings this remarkable chapter of frontier history to life.The American Grit series brings you true tales of endurance, survival, and ingenuity from the annals of American history.

Backroads of Arizona: Your Guide to Arizona's Most Scenic Backroad Adventures
by Hinckley, James; James, Kerrick

9780760326893752748326897Hinckley Jim (Text by); Kerrick James (Photographer)Backroads of Arizona: Your Guide to Arizona's Most Scenic Backroad AdventuresThe face of Arizona has changed dramatically over the centuries-but for those who know where to look, the coyote still howls, waterfalls still tumble into deep red rock canyons, and some of nature's finest handiwork is still to be seen along the backroads and byways of the state. For the open-road adventurer or the armchair tourist, Backroads of Arizona is the ideal guide to the state where antelope still roam, cowboys still ride the range, and mail is still delivered by mule train. Jim Hinckley's informative text and Kerrick James' brilliant color photography reveal the Grand Canyon State as more than just desert and towering saguaros: It is a powerful land of compelling variety where a mere sixty-mile drive can transport you from scorching sands to dense evergreen stands where deer and elk roam. Continuing on Voyageur Press' successful travel series, Backroads of Arizona takes you on more than twenty trips to the state's most notable and underappreciated sites. The book covers Arizona's plethora of awe-inspiring natural areas and national parks as well as its many historic sites, including Native American Pueblos and ancient ruins, ghost towns and vestiges of the Old West, and more. It is a fitting celebration of one of the most scenic states in the country. - Description from Syndetics
