A finalist for the Independent Publisher's National award, Hiking Arizona's Geology almost reads like four books in one. The first part describes a number of interesting trails, and can serve as a hiking guide even for those who do not care about Geology. The second part provides geologic information that makes hiking the trails more interesting because it helps one understand what is being seen. The third consists of geologic information about the various geologic provinces into which Arizona is divided. This provides an overall context for the geologic description of individual hikes. The fourth part is a brief introduction to the science of Geology that is written in terms accessible to the non-specialist and can stand alone as a primer to Geology. Between the general hiking where-to descriptions and the geology background, Hiking Arizona's Geology is for engaged hikers looking to explore the Southwest's landscape.

...the preface begins by stating that the reader is expected to have some geological background, and it isn't kidding! He throws a myriad of geological terms and concepts at you. Even so, the book is a good read (even if you have to go back several times to get a paragraph) and the author really gets DEEP into the history of the South West.

I recommend this book to someone who has patience to read and reread, or the appropriate scientific background.

Good book to compliment others covering AZ

Nice book but without the proper geology background it is hard to understand for average person. Will get a degree in geology!

Hiking Arizona Geology is really two books under one cover. In "book one", the first thirty-seven pages are a geology primer, written at a level understandable to the beginning student yet not condescending to the experienced professional. The following nineteen pages sketch the nearly two-billion-year-long geologic history of Arizona, leaving the reader well prepared to understand and appreciate the diverse geology and landscapes of the state. Information is delivered with an occasional philosophical undertone interspersed with wry humor typical of Ivo Lucchitta's style (e.g. ".... that peculiar variety of life called Homo, including its pretentious branch that is amusingly pleased to call itself sapiens.").
The attentive and therefore well-educated reader is now adequately, if not fully, prepared to appreciate the stories contained in rocks and their landforms along the forty-one hikes described in delicious detail, in "book two". Hikes were selected to illustrate the geologic, and not coincidentally, climatic diversity of Arizona. Many people not familiar with the state might assume that Arizona is one vast desert, only to be hiked during cool winter days. Not so! Hiking Arizona Geology is truly a book for all seasons, covering elevations ranging from about 2,000 to 12,600 feet above sea level.
For this review, I read the book from front to back, in one sitting. This left me somewhat put off by the repetition of material from Hike to Hike. But I also appreciate that for the occasional user, this kind of repetition is necessary, because each hike must stand alone.
My recommendation: Get the cobwebs out of your mind, the dust off your hiking boots, and hit the trail, book in hand. The exercise will be good for your physical and mental health, and you are bound to learn a lot about Mother Earth.

The author of this guidebook writes that a deeper understanding of something only heightens the enjoyment of that thing. So it is with hiking in Arizona. I have hiked many of the trails included in this book, but the geologic knowledge provided by this publication will undoubtedly add to the enjoyment of trails already well-trodden, as well as those still to be experienced. While technical enough to satisfy those with a scientific mind, the descriptions of geology in general, and Arizona in particular, are easily understood by anyone. In fact, the author's engaging style made these "geologic primers" some of my favorite parts of the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone intersted in hiking in Arizona. The trails included are all scenic, they're dispersed throughout the state, and they provide a wide representation of Arizona's geologic features.

Having just published a book about geology and hiking in the southwest, I can confidently say that Ivo Lucchitta's book is an excellent resource and enjoyable read for geologists and amateurs alike. Aside from good exercise, the hikes provide powerful insights into the formation of the structures in Arizona that most know as just beautiful scenery. If you're going to hike Arizona and want the additional rewards of understanding your surroundings, this book is a must.
