Focuses on southern Utah's unprotected lands in a testament to its warps and tangles of rock and sky. Combining history, geography and photography, Watkins reports the full story of the region - from its violent geologic beginnings to the coming and going of pre-Puebloan peoples, from the Mormon settlement of the 1840's and 1850's to the great uranium boom of the 1950's, from the beginning of tourism and parkland protection in the 1930's to today's controversial movement to preserve millions of acres of wild Utah land.
The Redrock Chronicles captures -- for as long as we're willing to hold small, beautiful books in our hands and hearts -- the wondrous mystique and complex politics of southern Utah's wild country.--Ron Steffens "Bloomsbury Review "
