Photographs by Jack W. Dykinga. 141pp. Oversize trade paperback. Only edition issued. Where the Sonoran desert ends and the tropical forests begin; up against the backside of the fabled Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexican is where the Secret Forest lies. A four hundred year old Colonial Spanish silver town, Alamos Mexico, where the paved highway dead ends at the plaza and cobblestone streets lead in myriad directions is where the secret forest begins. Bowden's brilliant text and Dykinga's superb images reveal this little known corner of the world to the rest of us.
