"A Most Singular Country" by Arthur R. Gomez
« on: October 10, 2006, 01:18:10 PM »
During our last trip to BIBE, I purchased a copy of "A Most Singular Country" by Arthur R. Gomez from the bookstore at Panther Junction.  It is an excellent accounting of the history of Big Bend.  I found it very hard to put down and almost read it from cover to cover in one sitting.  I highly recommend it as an addition to your collection of books on Big Bend.  Also, purchasing it from the bookstore helps out the Big Bend Natural History Association.  A link to their website and information on the book is:

Art Gomez did extensive research in compiling this book and it truly is a most comprehensive historic accounting of park history. I highly recommend it also.
The opinion expressed above is my own and not that of the National Park Service or the Federal government.
