Celebrating the colorful legacy of Arizona's first 100 years of statehood, ARIZONA, A Photographic Tribute is a stunning celebration of the state's scenic wonders. Luminous color photographs feature the magnificent landscapes, timeless vistas, majestic landmarks, and cultural icons the Grand Canyon State is known for worldwide. John Annerino casts an artist's, adventurer's, and scholar's perspective on a renowned international destination he knows intimately. He weaves the state's natural history, legends, and storied human history into an evocative introductory essay. Quotes from the records of Arizona's early travelers, writers, and photographers--whose own journeys defined their character as much as their prose, poetry, and images later defined our modern perceptions of Arizona's extraordinary Western landscape--also shape this tribute to a magnificent place in the American landscape.
