Many of the lofty spires, towering monuments, and deep canyons found in the Southwest are familiar sites from Hollywood westerns, and are sought out by avid sportsmen. But these sites are also sacred ground to Native peoples of the Colorado Plateau, Great Plains, Sierra Madre, and Sonoran Desert, and it is that venerated essence that John Annerino experienced and conveys in this collection of photographs and stories. With the help of Native elders, who guided him to secret and hallowed places, Annerino scaled 13,000-foot mountain summits, descended into shadowy caves, traced the footsteps of warriors to granite strongholds, and traced the handprints of ancient shamans, taking us with him. For more than 25 years, Annerino has clambered over rocks, hiked across parched expanses, climbed down into river canyons, and perched on treacherous ridges, risking his bones and even his life to record the elusive, ever-changing play of desert light on the dramatic landscapes of the Southwest.

"As a medicine man, I practice my beliefs by praying and singing during the traditional ceremonies that are sacred to us Apaches. We pray to the Four Directions—East, South, West, and North—and we have respect for every being. Through his words and pictures, John Annerino conveys the spiritual significance of our peoples' sacred places to those who aren't familiar with them. I have enjoyed knowing and working with him through the years."—Robertson Preston
