SIGNED. 260pp. 7" X 7" wraps in black spine and colorful, illustrated covers. A lifelong resident of Moab, Utah, Stiles meditates on the impact of the tourist and biking industries (that have replaced mining) in Moab, and contrasts them with the need to recognize that the area's beautiful and unique landscape is being overrun by careless, bovine tourists, who are causing its rapid deterioration. Illustrated by the author. Near fine condition.
