""In the Grand Canyon, Arizona has a natural wonder which, so far as I know, is in kind absolutely unparalleled throughout the rest of the world...The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it. What you can do is to keep it for your children, your children's children, and for all who come after you, as the one great sight which every American ... should see."

A really lovely photographic book, with lots of pictures. A bit surprising that there are quite a few pictures with people climbing /hanging off ropes in the book. But still a lovely reminder of our trip.

Good Reading...But, this is supposed to be a photography book as well 29 April 2007
By Wildness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
(This is a combined review of John Annerino's three photo essay books: *Grand Canyon Wild*, *Desert Light*, and *Canyon Country*)

John Annerino knows the desert southwest well and his writing about it is enjoyable and informative; and, this holds true with *Grand Canyon Wild: A Photographic Journey*, *Desert Light: a Photographer's Journey Through America's Desert Southwest*, and *Canyon Country: A Photographic Journey*. In addition to his nature writing on the topic, he has also published a couple of useful guides to photographing in the Southwest.

But, even with pretty text, I can't recommend any of these three books. Why? Because the photography is just not that good. This may not be a critic on Annerino's photography...but, at the same time it might. He has a good eye for composition, but what you can't tell is whether he has a good eye for color reproduction or a good eye for light in general. I want to believe that the less than stellar - less than average actually - photographic reproductions in two of these books (*Grand Canyon Wild* and *Desert Light*) is down right horrible! In *Canyon Country*, it is better than the other two, but definitely not great.

So, why is that? Is it just plain bad printing in China? Is it bad design work by the publisher? Is it just average photographic skills of the author? Probably, a combination of all three. Even just the covers of *Grand Canyon Wild* and *Desert Light* are enough to question the capabilities of the designer for these books - they are weak images with average lighting and no pop whatsoever. The cover of *Canyon Country* is muxh better than the other two - so much so, that it must have been designed by a different person. The fact that *Canyon Country* is better on the inside and outside says that it was better produced altogether.

Since I live in the landscape that is the subject of these three books and I am a photographer myself, I can tell you that some of the scenes photographed in these books look better to the naked eye...in the middle of the day when the light is washed out and flat.

If you just want to read the good text, then find them at your local bookstore and enjoy with a cup of coffee while sitting in the store's comfortable seating. But, definitely pass on purchasing, especially if you are looking for great photography from the Colorado Plateau.

A Guide to my Book Rating System:

1 star = The wood pulp would have been better utilized as toilet paper.
2 stars = Don't bother, clean your bathroom instead.
3 stars = Wasn't a waste of time, but it was time wasted.
4 stars = Good book, but not life altering.
5 stars = This book changed my world in at least some small way.
