Arches - The Story Behind the Scenery
by David W. Johnson

Grain by grain, bit by bit, water and time have sculpted the arid land into an infinite variety of forms: towering spires, sheer cliffs, balanced rocks and graceful arches of stone.  This giant rock garden seems rugged and changeless, but it is always evolving and continuously being reshaped by erosion.  It is a wondrous place in which to feel the power of time.

Arches National Park, Utah forms the beginning of the unique area known as the Colorado Plateau.  Millions of years ago this was land of sand, brought in by an ancient sea.  The water receded, the sand stayed.  Time, pressure and many other forces created massive layers of sandstone.

Arches, the Story Behind the Scenery, escorts you through this magical land of seemingly living rock forms which over reach, swirl and change into natural sculptures formed by the imagination of the wind.  Let your own imagination soar as you see outlines and silhouetted forms interpreted for you when you add this wonderful book to you shopping cart now.

9x12, Paperback, 48 pages, 70 color photos, & 2 maps
