Here is the latest book I am pleased to have my imagery published in, written by my friend and great writer, Roger Naylor, and published by Rio Nuevo Publishers of Tucson. "Boots & Burgers: An Arizona Handbook for Hungry Hikers" was released Oct. 24 and is available in stores across the state and on Amazon.
According to Roger:
"This is my dream book, one I've had in my head for years. It's actually a love letter to Arizona, disguised as a hiking and dining guide. Here's the idea: Spend a morning hiking miles on a beautiful trail, and then grab a juicy burger. That's my favorite day of all. I'll take that day anytime I can get it.
Beyond trail descriptions and restaurant info, I provide suggestions for attractions and activities. I add historic tidbits, rambling thoughts and big dollops of quirkiness. Most of all, the book is packed with great days. Peel off some for yourself. Lace up the boots and explore the scenic wonders of this epic landscape. Then unwind in a comfortable hideout, where burgers leap off the grill like trout from a stream."
As a teaser to get you started with the book, the following images (16 of the 17) in this gallery, produced by me, are images included in the book. With most every one of them I have reproduced Roger's words from the book, so you can get a sense of the content.
For those who would like to buy the book, it was just released a week ago, and can be purchased on Amazon at:
In addition, Roger will be doing a book signing at Changing Hands Bookstore, of Tempe, on Friday night @ 7pm, November 14th. I will be there, so if you would like to buy a copy there, and/or join me, please feel free ;-)
