      When I am an old woman and can no longer travel, I hope that I can look at this book to bring back the feeling of the endless blue sky in the land of enchantment. Looking at the photographs from Seattle, I can almost smell the pinon wood smoke and hear the cicadas in the trees.

      Genius format for a travel guide! I wish I'd thought of this. Answers those nagging "I keep seeing [X:]--what is it?" questions, with entries on all kinds of architectural details, street life, food, American Indian symbols, etc.
