Frog Mountain Blues (Paperback)
Frog Mountain is the name the native people gave the highest peak in Arizona's Santa Catalina Mountains. In this set of seven essays, Bowden elegizes this endangered wilderness area, and describes the recent developmentsroads, ski lodges, ATV trailsthat have degraded the mountains.
He believes in preserving the wilderness, insisting that there be no encroachment into remaining wild areas. Some of the writing is startling in its descriptive power and imagery, and the chapter "Frog Mountain" is an elegant defense of the preservationist point of view.
The many photographs nicely complement Bowden's text. But overall the book is uneven. Suitable for regional and comprehensive collections. Randy Dykhuis, Grace A. Dow Memorial Lib., Midland, Mich.
