The book itself in good in that it presents a well rounded story of the canyon. But there is really no excuse for photos printed so poorly that they are useless.

This book is an instructive tool to appreciate the full composition and varied history of this canyon complex. Having this text completes the experience. The book itself in good in that it presents a well rounded story of the canyon. My copy also arrived with one corner crunched to oblivion, not that that is the publishers fault.

Of the canyons that break the eastern edge of the Staked Plains, Palo Duro is by far the most spectacular. As one approaches the edge, the earth opens up into a vast gash, a geological and ecological wonder. And whether you come to Palo Duro as a novice or veteran canyoneer, the thrill and the mystery are always intense.How did the canyon get here? What caused the vari-color of the walls and formations? Why do some formations stand completely separated from the canyon walls? Did the little stream running along the canyon floor form this canyon all by itself? Who were the first people to find this canyon and how did they react? On this last question imagination goes to work and contemplates what ancient people must have felt when they, even less aware than we, stumbled upon the chasm rim and quickly realized that they had found a bonanza, an immense concentration of water, wood, game, and protection—all they needed to sustain life.—Frederick W. RathjenOriginally published as an edition of the Panhandle Plains Historical Review, The Story of Palo Duro Canyon , with its seven essays devoted to geology, archeology, paleontology, vegetation, park development, and the amphitheater, and its road log from Canyon, Texas, through the Palo Duro State Park, has become a classic. This Double Mountain Books edition, with a new introduction by Frederick W. Rathjen, makes available once again a comprehensive discovery and invaluable memento for the many thousands who visit the park each year.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park remains one of my favorite year round destinations to hike, camp , picnic or just for a scenic drive . This book is an instructive tool to appreciate the full composition and varied history of this canyon complex. Having this text completes the experience .

Very interesting

I can't say I am happy with this book. Honestly the geology section was the section I was most interested in. Each section is written by different people, The geology section is good, and would have been fine, except for the fact that the photos for that section are nearly all black! All the photos in the book are B&W, but the geology ones are nearly impossible to tell at all what they are supposed to be! The only one I could make out was the Lighthouse. In fact, the 1930's CCC photos were far better, and easier to see. The paleontology photos are good, and the CCC photos are fun. The archeology section is good. The book itself in good in that it presents a well rounded story of the canyon. But there is really no excuse for photos printed so poorly that they are useless. My copy also arrived with one corner crunched to oblivion, not that that is the publishers fault.

I purchased this book to get some background on Palo Duro as I will be visiting in June. It does get very technical and I did skip over reading some of it. I found the political development of the park interesting.

Great book!

I was really wanting a hiking and camping guide. This was more of a compilation of scientific papers and of very limited use to me.
