The backdrop of the narrative centers on Canyon de Chelly (pronounced, "de-chay"), near Chile, Arizona, and features one of the most remarkable res dogs (strays) the author has ever had the pleasure to meet.

The Colorado Plateau is largely made up of high desert, with scattered areas of forests. The Four Corners region and the Colorado Plateau. The Book Cliffs of western Colorado. In the southwest corner of the Colorado Plateau lies the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River. Much of the Plateau's landscape is related, in both appearance and geologic history, to the Grand Canyon. The Green River runs north to south from Wyoming, briefly through Colorado, and converges with the Colorado River in southeastern Utah.

I consider myself a curious person, but I sometimes dislike spending a lot of time researching for the info I want. When I encountered this book, I discovered I could not only enjoy fabulous pictures, but learn about the history of the area and what had caused some of those incredible geologic formations in the Southwest without having to endure the agony of reading material written by geologists who seem to have muddled their brains during their studies of the Paleozoic era.
Basically, I had been more-or-less clueless about the stupendous geologic history of the scenic Colorado Plateau referred to in the book's title.But having read this book, I'll never again travel to favorite haunts like Moab, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park or Monument Valley without a whole new perspective of what I'm seeing, and trust me, it's pretty awesome! For example, these lands were once south of the equator!
Throw in a whole new understanding of the amazing human history that unfolded in the same area for several hundred years before the Spaniards, add the color of a better understanding of the more recent tribes, like the Navajo, Ute, Apache--and this book is not only a quick, easy read, but it's a real revelation about history and culture.
But what this book is really most about is PHOTOGRAPHS, and while I've followed Tom Till's work on calendar's and other books, the pairing of photo and text really work to create an informative book and a work of art. His photographs of the Grand Canyon--one of which I later realized is also on a postage stamp, are my particular favorites, although pictures of Monument Valley or the sunflowers of Great Sand Dunes National Monument in Colorado are a close second.
This book is a must for anyone infatuated with, or merely curious about, the canyon country of the American Southwest.

Geological, prehistoric, historic and contemporary events are described and depicted beautifully in The Colorado Plateau - The Land and The Indians. Photographs by Tom Till and choice words by Kathleene Parker combine to provide a unique aesthetic experience for card-carrying southwesterners and wanna-bes.
The insights into the numerous Indian tribes of the Colorado Plateau reflect how different and diverse the cultures are.
Highly recommended.
