A worthy tale…An entertaining read that informs about history and anthropology as we participate in a desert excursion. (Jackson Hole News & Guide)
If serious hiking is your interest, then Sandstone Spine is a must, and destined to become a classic. (Tulsa World)
"The author offers compelling accounts of [his] Southwestern exploration, artfully capturing and articulating what it feels like to 'discover' a remote and pristine ruin… Ultimately, this forceful work of creative nonfiction testifies to the continued capacity of ruins to reveal cultural, as well as autobiographical truths. [It] also speaks to the resonance of the Southwest as a locale filled with enigmatic and haunting antiquities, as the photographs in [Sandstone Spine] attests… [This] book offers eloquent and powerful evidence of the fact that no culture is exempt from extinction." (Don Scheese, of Gustavus Adolphus College ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature & Environment)
A must-read for serious hikers and explorers, armchair and boots on the ground types alike, that contemplate visiting this wonderful resource. (Moab Times-Independent)
