5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By D. Rhodes on September 17, 2006
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Sadly, the fine photos in this book are overshadowed by erroneous text. The editors at the University of Oklahoma did not do their job. A hotel in Areponapuchi is mislocated at another train station, Bahuichivo. Cerocahui is placed at the edge of the Urique Canyon instead of in a high mountain valley, an arroyo becomes a canyon. The book seems to contain good information but the many errors caused me to question what is true and what is not. Likewise, many photo captions are so questionable that they detract from the superb photography.
