New Big Bend Books
« on: March 02, 2017, 07:04:44 AM »
Two new books of interest have just been published by Texas A&M University Press:

Why the Raven Calls the Canyon by Dan Klepper. This is the same Dan Klepper who wrote 100 Classic Hikes in Texas. The new book is a photographic chronicle of life on the Fresno Ranch, which was formerly owned by the late artist Jeanne Norsworthy and inspired much of the art found in her book Healing Landscapes. The ranch is now part of Big Bend Ranch State Park.

Nature Watch Big Bend: A Seasonal Guide by Lynne and Jim Weber.

Coming later this spring from the same publisher: From the Frio to Del Rio: Travel Guide to the Western HIll Country and Lower Pecos Canyonlands.

I haven't seen any of these but you can see the catalog descriptions of them at http://www.tamupress.com/Filerepository/webdocuments/catalogs.htm

Good stuff. I plan on getting them all. Lynne and Jim Weber are friends of mine. They know Big Bend pretty darn well and bring incisive naturalists' eyes and ears, sharpened by miles and miles of on-the-ground experience, to their writing.
