A PERSONAL GUIDE TO INCREDIBLE SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA: 2022-23 Edition
This guidebook is my personalized presentation of Scottsdale and its surroundings. It is based upon my 46-years as a professor of geography, teaching among other subjects a geography and history of Arizona. And it is also based upon my 31-years as a Scottsdale resident with intimate knowledge of what the city has to offer the visitor.
This is a full color edition of my Scottsdale guide that is already available in black and white at a lower price. The full color version brings you closer to the dynamic beauty of Scottsdale and also better illustrates the beauty of the landscapes on the one-day or overnight trips I suggest in the last chapters. I hope you will find the Arizona desert and the rest of the beauty of the state as enchanting as I have in my many decades living here. Scottsdale is a great place to visit. As the old expression goes, “Once you get desert sand in your shoes, you will find it hard to get rid of.”
ARIZONA IN LIVING COLOR
Arizona is home to the Grand Canyon and an incredible array of dramatic landscapes unlike any found in the rest of the world. I have written about the state in my book “The Arizona Story,” put pictures are worth far more than words when attempting to describe the magnitude and beauty of Arizona. This full color portfolio in 8.5 x 11 inch format draws together the best of my photographs of the state that has been my home for over 50 years.
