summary
The landscapes of the American Southwest-the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, the Sedona red rocks, Meteor Crater-have long filled humans with wonder about nature. This is also the home of the Lowell Observatory, where astronomers discovered evidence of the expanding universe. This landscape has a magical aura, and Don Lago explores its depths with a personal and poetic style that is indicative of the very best writing about nature and the philosophy of science.
