Item reviewed: 2012 edition

The book covers the following area:
* All of Arizona;
* All of New Mexico;
* Southern Utah, i.e. roughly south of the line of Interstate-70;
* Southwest Colorado, i.e. roughly SW of and including Ouray;
* The southern tip of Nevada, i.e. Las Vegas and environs.
Therefore this area is somewhat different from the region called Southwest USA in DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: USA (DK Eyewitness Travel Guides).

This book is divided into the following sections:

- Introduction (38 pp)
- Sights in the area covered, divided into 7 regions (182 pp)
- Travellers' needs and Survival Guide (70 pp)
- Index (Good, but in small print) (10 pp).

Las Vegas is well-described at 38 pp. This leaves 144pp for sights in the rest of the area covered. The coverage per unit area is about one-third of that in DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: California, leaving out Los Angeles and San Francisco since the SW USA does not have a comparable megalopolis. In an unexciting region this might not matter, but the area in fact has a wealth of interesting places, including the Grand Canyon and a large number of other very well-visited national parks.

I had this book with me on a recent trip to the SW, and found that, apart from Las Vegas, it just wasn't detailed enough. Given that the far more detailed California book is only about a pound more, this book might even be regarded as a swiz.

I genuinely am a massive massive fan of the DK Eyewitness Travel guides but I was a little disappointed with this book. I went on a trip to not only Vegas but a number of beautiful locations in the USA, but the book didn't quite give me the detail, walks and coverage that I experienced with my London and Paris books for example. It is a good book but unfortunately isn't on Parr with the other DK books out there. In hindsight I might have just got the DK books that focuses on the specific locations such as top 10 travel guides or Las Vegas itself.

I love Eyewitness books as they are organised into logical areas, have pictures and a good summary of places to see and things to do. The restaurants, bars and hotels section is always useful. I never go on holiday without an Eyewitness travel guide.
