Arizona is known for its exceptional variety of topography and ecosystems. From stands of saguaro cacti and plunging canyons to high alpine forests, many are fragile areas in need of protection. All told, Arizona has some 92 wilderness areas, and author Tom Dollar provides informative descriptions for backcountry travelers wishing to explore those 65 areas accessible to the public. (Many areas are so remote they are virtually inaccessible.) This guidebook includes suggestions for hikers, along with insights into the unique natural history of such areas as Paria Canyon, Mazatzal, Organ Pipe, and Kachina Peaks wildernesses. Outdoor photographer Jerry Sieve's dramatic photographs illustrate each of the areas described.

Climate change is a profoundly social and political challenge that threatens the well-being, livelihood, and survival of people in communities worldwide. Too often, those who have contributed least to climate change are the most likely to suffer from its negative consequences and are often excluded from the policy discussions and decisions that affect their lives. People and Climate Change pays particular attention to the social dimensions of climate change. It closely examines people's lived experience, climate-related injustice and inequity, why some groups are more vulnerable than others, and what can be done about it--especially through greater community inclusion in policy change. The book offers a diverse range of rich, community-based examples from across the "Global North" and "Global South" (e.g., sacrificial flood zones in urban Argentina, forced relocation of United Houma tribal members in the United States, gendered water insecurities in Bangladesh and Australia) while posing social and political questions about climate change (e.g., what can be done about the unequal consequences of climate change by questioning and transforming social institutions and arrangements?). It serves as an essential resource for practitioners, policymakers, and undergraduate-/graduate-level educators of courses in environmental studies, social work, urban studies, planning, geography, sociology, and other disciplines that address matters of climate and environmental change.

Just east of the greater Phoenix area, the Superstition Mountains are a wild, rugged range of volcanic peaks, mesas, and canyons. A network of trails covers this wilderness, reaching into Sonoran desert canyons, pine forested valleys, mysterious volcanic rock formations, and jagged peaks. North of the Superstitions and still only a two hour drive from Phoenix, the Mazatzal Mountains are one of Arizona’s largest and most remote wilderness areas. You can hike for days here without seeing another hiker. Completely revised and updated, Hiking Arizona’s Superstition and Mazatzal Country, 2nd, is your ticket to exploring and enjoying this remarkable country, from the Verde River to the pine-forested peaks along the Mazatzal Crest, the jagged summits of Four Peaks, and the labyrinthine canyons of the Superstitions. This guidebook contains descriptions of enjoyable hikes from a few hours to a week in length, for everyone from family groups to ardent peak baggers. Many of the hikes are loops and have opportunities for side trips and exploration. Look inside to find: Hikes suited to every ability Mile-by-mile directional cues GPS coordinates for all trailheads as well as critical points along the hikes Easy-to-read, up-to-date maps and elevation profiles Safety, technique, and equipment tips
