A richly imagined, diversely peopled chronicle of modern Southwestern culture, this new title blazes with the singular lyricism and visionary sweep of the American West's renowned novelist and philosopher.

For part of each of the last twenty years, much-loved essayist and fiction writer William Kittredge has ventured to the storied desert landscape in and arouand Arizona and immersed himself in the region's wide-ranging wonders and idiosyncrasies.

In the exhilarating 'Southwestern Homelands', Kittredge brings all this experience to bear as he takes us on rewarding tour of the territory that runs from Santa Fe to Yuma, and from the Grand Canyon on south through Phoenix and Tucson to Nogales.

It is a region where urban sprawl abuts desert expanse, where Native American pueblos compete for space with agribusiness cotton plantations, and where semi-defunct mining towns slowly give way to new-age hippie gardening and crafts enclaves.

As part-time resident and full-time observer, William Kittredge acquaints us with one of the country's most vital and perpetually evolving regions.

Populated with die-hard desert rats on the banks of the Colorado, theoretical physicists in Albuquerque, Hopi mothers and their daughters, and renegade punk-rock kids sleeping in the streets, 'Southwestern Homelands' is a book as much about the legacies of a territory's colourful past as it is about the alternately exciting and daunting complexities of its immediate future.
