"Few writers can better express the strange vitality of desert landscapes than Childs."
Originally published over twenty-five years ago, Stone Desert brings the wonder and wildness of one of our nation's most geologically and culturally unique national parks to readers everywhere. With a new introduction by the author, this edition includes Craig Childs's original journal--written over a winter in Canyonlands National Park and complete with pen-and-ink sketches--from which Stone Desert originated. Join Childs as he hikes the high mesas, navigates the winding canyons, and witnesses the ancient rock art of Utah's most inscrutable and remote slickrock desert.
