Sunshot - Peril And Wonder in the Gran Desierto (The Southwest Center Series), Broyles, Bill
1 Sunshot - Peril And Wonder in the Gran Desierto (The Southwest Center Series)
Broyles, Bill
Tucson, Arizona University of Arizona Press 2006 0816525242 / 9780816525249 First Paperback 
Beautiful large trade paperback with French flaps. Text by Bill Broyles. Photographs by Michael P. Berman. No fading, chipping or creasing. Binding is tight, pages and edges are clean and bright. Small stamp mark at lower corner of half-title page: "Donated by the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute's Nature Writing Award Program." No other marks. Illustrated with gorgeous photographs throughout. 245 pages. Over the years, Bill Broyles has ventures into the sunshot territory of Northern Mexico, slogged across its salt flats and sand dunes, defied its deadly heat. These are his essays into the heart of a forbidding but beautiful land. Michael Berman's stark black and white photographs capture the desolate beauty of the desert while conveying a sense of Broyles' adventures. Gleaned from more than 4,000 images shot with a large-format camera, these exquisite photographs translate the desert's formidle monotone into finely-tuned sudies of light and represent some of the best photos ever taken of this mysterious region. 025684

Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. After the War of 1812, Edward Biddle returned to Philadelphia. But because of the taint of his father's disloyalty to the American cause, he was publicly snubbed by the "loyal" Biddles, and two years later, in 1819, he left Philadelphia for the heart of the vast Michigan Territory -- Mackinac Island -- where the code was WHAT, not WHO one was. Set against the exciting history of the roaring Michigan Territory and the turbulent struggle of America's great fur trading empires, this is a story of wealth and power, of murder and violence...and of a love that changes the direction and lives of countless people. 026313
