The photographic The Canyons of Gateway book, through the stunning photography of John Hendricks, founder of the Discovery Channel, tells the magnificent story of a place where the planet opens up to tell its story. Petroglyphs spy from ancient canyon walls, dinosaur footprints wander down a trail lined with towering cliffs, and vast green meadows of enchanted pastureland evoke images of the native peoples who once inhabited this remote section of western Colorado. The area in the Colorado book, The Canyons of Gateway, seen through the artistic eyes of a man known for discovery, is beautifully introduced to an audience mostly unfamiliar with its existence. The forward, written by John Hendricks, describes his childhood fascination with the area, his initial journey to Gateway and his current efforts to stimulate the economy while preserving the rare landscape. The introduction to the Colorado landscape book, The Canyons of Gateway, and text are written by New York travel writer, Mary Judd, who was born and raised in Colorado, but like many residents, was unaware of the state's vast wonders further west. Her newcomer's view provides a clear narrative tour to complement the thought provoking images. The Discovery book, The Canyons of Gateway, takes the reader on an unprecedented journey through time, in one of the most naturally colorful places on earth. Hendricks reveals the earth's only canyon where a creek has two mouths, vast walls of Precambrian rock, high mesas that have sustained cattle and wildlife for ages, and the towering Palisade rock formation that looms where Unaweep Canyon meets the Dolores River Canyon. In the photographic The Canyons of Gateway book, you'll see that from surreal landscape shots to soulful images of abandoned structures to highlights of current Gateway architecture, the book provides a captivating glimpse into the past, present and future of a rare American landscape.
