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.

The criteria for designation as an American Historic Hotel is to be at least fifty-years-old. The first ten hotels are Historic and the next seventeen are notable for unique features. Arizona is a unique state with characteristics not found elsewhere in America or the world. There are beautiful natural wonders such as the Grand Canyon, early Western history is recreated at dude ranches, and there are even historic “treatment” facilities such as the Castle Hot Springs Resort. Historic hotels capture earlier times. This comprehensive guide describes rooms, rates, and amenities. It includes details of movie locations, famous guests, and notable recipes. This history of Arizona includes hotels famous for the “Five C’s of Arizona:” Cattle, Citrus, Climate, Copper, Cotton, and even an extra C for Convalescence since doctors prescribed a visit to Arizona as treatment for many ailments. Guests armed with this knowledge can better enjoy their visit to all parts of Arizona.
