About the author (1999)

John Annerino is an award-winning author and photographer of 19 distinguished photography books and 33 single-artist calendars. John received the Annual Society of Publication Design Awards for his photography in the National Geographic Adventure feature "Along the Devil's Highway." In his quest to explore the mythic landscapes and secret places of the Great Southwest by foot, raft, rope, camera, and pen over the last 25 years, John has climbed its hallowed mountains, rowed and rafted its wild and scenic rivers, journeyed through its mystical canyons, and traced ancient Indian paths across its alluring deserts. He has befriended and photographed the region's native peoples and ceremonies, Western cowboys and traditions, and Spanish heritage and celebrations. The Essential Colorado Plateau is his second book with Farcountry Press.
