Arizona: The Beauty of It All
by Sam Negri, Arizona Highways Contributors
If you had to choose just one affordably-priced book to be representative
of Arizona's natural beauty, in all its variety and splendor, this
would be it.
First, there are the photographs: more than 65 of them, by the most
respected professionals in the field. Arizona Highways contributors
from around the state supplied full-color images that vividly display
the harmony of color and form, rich textures and vast spaces of
Arizona's deserts, mountains, plateaus, grasslands and riparian
niches. The immense, sculpted layers of the Grand Canyon, cool pools
of water in the midst of searing desert, green "sky island"
mountains thrusting upward from basin floors and monumental rock
formations - all contribute to the sometimes subtle and sometimes
overwhelming beauty of Arizona.
Then there's the descriptive text. Journalist and veteran outdoorsman
Sam Negri draws from a deep well of experience to characterize the
landscape, relating it to the state's history and folklore. In six
chapters, he explores the deep forests and sculpted plateaus of
the Arizona Strip, the color and texture of Indian Country, the
vast ribbon of trees and water that make up the mountains, the unexpected
exotic appeal of Western Arizona, the diversity of life and forms
of the Southwestern Desert and the Southeastern Desert's land of
First published in 1996 and now available in its third printing,
the book's impressive cover and the quality of its design assure
that it will remain a literary ambassador welcomed by those wanting
to stay in touch with this interesting corner of the world.

Talk about a Tucson institution! Bookman's offers a huge selection,
including books, music, magazines, software, video and more in stores
as big as warehouses but appointed like funky nightclubs. This year,
a third location on East Speedway was added, and we can't say enough
about its music-listening stations, a way-cool fountain, countless
stacks among which you can lose yourself and tricked-out bathrooms
that should be featured on MTV's Cribs. --Tucson Weekly

In 1983, two people who loved movies, Raymond and Gala Mellenberndt,
and who were raised with movies, decided to create a store with
not just mainstream titles, but classics, foreign movies, documentaries,
cult movies, and experimental movies.
Casa Video went out of its way to become unique. In the beginning,
it was about the same size as the neighborhood candy store. There
were no other stores like it in Tucson. The original location on
Grant and Campbell was a universe different from any other video
store in the west...like an old book- store, it resembled a cave
where someone could discover hidden treasures found nowhere else.
Then came Blockbuster...then came Hollywood... then came all other
McVideos. Most other mom and pop video stores went out of business.
Casa Video grew and grew.
Casa Video is now an 8,000 square foot store located at 2905 East
Speedway Blvd., Tucson, Arizona 85716. It has two floors, housing
more than 40,000 video rentals...DVD's...audio books...and video
It has the largest selection of foreign movies, classics, documentaries,
independent movies, and hard-to-find movies in the entire state

Flying Free: Corey's Underground Railroad
Diary, Book Two (My America) by Sharon Dennis Wyeth
In 1858, nine-year-old Corey Birdsong and his family flee Kentucky
and their lives as slaves. With the aid of the Underground Railroad,
the Birdsongs arrive in Amherstburg, Canada. There, an entire community
of people of color welcomes them and helps the family build new
lives in freedom. Children need not be familiar with book one of
Corey's diary, Freedom's Wings (2001), to take up this continuation.
Through Corey's entries and the informative notes, children find
out about African Canadians, like those in Corey's new home, who
owned land and businesses, had their own churches and schools, and
eagerly helped newcomers like the Birdsongs get on their feet. In
the course of his diary, Corey escapes a slave catcher and helps
a friend steal away from Kentucky to freedom--episodes that add
excitement as well as historic relevancy. A solid addition to the
My America series. - Ellen Mandel
Reflections of a Black Cowboy, Book
Three - Pioneers by Robert H. Miller, Floyd Cooper
The third in Miller's ``Reflections of a Black Cowboy'' series
introduces such nearly-forgotten figures as York, a slave who guided
the Lewis and Clark expedition; Pony Express rider George Monroe;
Ed Rose, known as ``Cut-Nose'' after Mike Fink bit off that appendage
in an epic battle; and Biddy Mason, who spent most of her life as
a slave but ended up as a wealthy citizen of Los Angeles. In the
persona of an old black hermit up in the hills talking to his dog,
the author tells his tales informally, basing them on published
accounts (there's a solid bibliography) but supplying his own dialogue
and detail. Linoleum prints effectively dramatize the high spots.

the Myth!, by Vincent A. Lazara
"Live the Myth!" is an engaging, easy to read, yet
challenging book. It is suitable for individuals to absorb to gain
wisdom from the application of metaphors, but is particularly applicable
for group study in a classroom setting. The book is appropriate
for those who know nothing about myths as it provides the reader
with background on the role of myths in the first 2 chapters and
the appendices provide sufficient reference information to help
the novice mythologist. Those 2 chapters and the appendices also
provides the readers with a strong background in mythology a brief
review and introduction to the rest of the treatise. The organization
of the chapters in which each presents a discourse on one of the
16 myths provides the reader with activities and discussion questions
to lead the reader into practical application of the metaphors of
each myth to everyday life. I highly recommend this book. -
