To fully appreciate this amazing landscape, read Susan M. Neider’s Color Country: Touring the Colorado Plateau.
Stewart Mittnacht
For anyone planning to visit the area, or for anyone who has visited the area, or for any armchair travelers imagining the area, I heartily recommend Color Country.

The book focuses on the national and state parks of one specific region, the Colorado Plateau, and allows one to see a diverse set of sites as an integrated whole.

Format: Paperback
I'm rarely moved to comment on a guidebook, and certainly not in regard to the literary quality of a volume that I acquired initially for its souvenir value as a photographic guide, but this is an exception. Several years ago, I made a solo trip to "color country," and found the experience awesome, in the true sense of that term. The odd, vast, and fascinating formations of the Colorado plateau touched a deep chord in me, a chord whose tones and timbre I unexpectedly found resonating in Susan Neider's wonderful descriptions. Her characterization of the area, its features, and how it makes her feel captured my own experience brilliantly. The first and second editions of this book offered an array of stunning photographs highlighting the magic of this landscape. Even so, this expanded third edition is of such high-quality that the pages seem almost self-illuminated! For anyone planning to visit the area, or for anyone who has visited the area, or for any armchair travelers imagining the area, I heartily recommend Color Country. It is a lovely and knowledgeable companion for anyone's journey of discovery. What Neider does so well is to usher her readers to the right places, and then she sets them free.

The Colorado Plateau is a vast region of the American West that includes treasured national parks and monuments, state parks, deep canyons, towering mountains, powerful rivers, and broad stretches of desert. To fully appreciate this amazing landscape, read Susan M. Neider’s Color Country: Touring the Colorado Plateau. With her book, walk among the shimmering aspens that line the San Juan Skyway; climb a wooden ladder and look into the living quarters of Mesa Verde and Bandelier; go to the edge of the Grand Canyon – stay there for a long while – take in the changing colors; be surprised by the deep greens of the trees of Zion, set against the gleaming whites and terra-cotta reds of the surrounding canyon walls. In this book, you will find every corner of the Colorado Plateau, and you will explore.

A consummate ability to explain is present throughout the writing, which blends information and description to capture a sense of place. Clear maps direct you to your destinations, thirty in all. The photographs are visceral—you will feel something in each—changes in temperature, sudden thunderstorm, intense sun, the power of water that cuts canyons.

Neider’s book can be both an invaluable guide to plan your trip and a wonderful memory of what you will see.

Color Country: Touring the Colorado Plateau is an IPPY Award winner. Recently, the title won in four categories in Colorado Independent Publishers Association’s 2014 EVVY Awards Book Competition, including First Place in Coffee Table Books.
