About the Author
Lawrence W. Cheek worked for the Tucson Citizen for 14 years as a reporter, music and architecture critic, essayist, and Saturday editor. He then edited Tucson's City Magazine, a free-ranging monthly that comprised investigative reporting, politics, popular culture, and the arts. His work frequently appears in Arizona Highways magazine, which also has published three of his books: Scenic Sedona, Photographing Arizona, and A.D. 1250: Ancient People of the Southwest. In addition Mr. Cheek is also the author of Compass American Guide: Santa Fe.
About the Photographers
Michael Freeman is a noted photographer and writer who has traveled all over the globe for book and magazine publishers, both British and American. His work has appeared in the Sunday Times of London and Smithsonian magazine. Most recently, for the large-picture format book Angkor, he has undertaken the first study of this ancient Cambodian city in two decades.
Kerrick James's photography is enriched both by his lifelong love of geology and mineralogy and by his admiration for American writers such as Edward Abbey and Mark Twain. A scholarship to study mining engineering in New Mexico introduced him to the SOuthwest, and today his territory is the American West, northern Mexico, and Hawaii. His work appears in travel magazines, school texts, and guidebooks. He lives in Arizona with his wife, Theresa, and their two sons, Shane and Royce.
