FLYING HOME, The Colorado Plateau from Above and Below
In Flying Home, The Colorado Plateau from Above and Below, Craig Childs is your guide as he and his pilot friend Neal Schwieterman hop from one mesa-top landing strip to another in a 1946 Cessna.
Between hawk’s-eye panoramas and on-the-ground adventures, you’ll fly directly into the heart of the Colorado Plateau in a uniquely memorable way.
Publication date: January 2018. 160 pages, 140 illustrations.
Softbound with front and back flaps. $24.95. Published by PPCA, Peaks, Plateaus and Canyons Association.
The Peaks, Plateaus and Canyons Association, nonprofit publisher of Flying Home and previously of Sojourns, chose to mark the end of that journal’s decade-long adventure with a special double issue. Happily, the involvement of Childs and imagery from some of the country’s most talented photographers allowed that farewell issue to evolve into this book now available.
