Spilling off the ridgeline of the Colorado Plateau, soaring through spectacular red rock country, and meandering among widespread grasslands where Oak Creek meets the Verde, the chapters in this book flow from the macro to microcosmic ecosystems that form the beautiful and unique Oak Creek Watershed.
Through the voice of Oak Creek, this book unveils hidden wonders of the watershed’s history, hydrology, ecology, and geology. Characterized by towering spires, soaring red walls, sweeping valleys, and the majesty of Oak Creek, therein lay the often-overlooked consequences of human behavior within the ridgeline of the Oak Creek Watershed. While beautifully descriptive, the writing also uncovers the challenges of the watershed.
