The Guadalupe Mountains of the Big Bend region of Texas contain some of the wildest and most magnificent scenery of any primordial wilderness area in the world. The 60 spectacular color photographs in this book vividly capture this extraordinary and pristine landscape while providing a splendid visual reference for Alan Tennant's marvelous account of the natural and social history of the area from prehistoric times to the present. The text deftly ranges from the story of Geronimo and the U.S. Army to wildlife behavior to an explanation of the complexity of the environment's fragile ecology.
