Texas Big Bend: A Photographic Adventure from the Pecos to the Rio Grande
by Bill Wright
Publisher's Description
The first comprehensive photographic study of the Big Bend region, Texas’ Big Bend presents a stunning area of the nation in a manner that lifts it up to an artistic experience, recreating the feeling many people have when they first encounter the natural beauty of the area. These interpretive photographs take the viewer more deeply into the magic of Big Bend than previous guidebook/panorama-type books have.

The region of Texas that is embraced by the big bend of the Rio Grande is one of the most spectacular areas in our country, comparable in beauty and ruggedness to Yellowstone and Yosemite, but providing a solitude those parks cannot offer. Big Bend’s grandeur, remoteness, rich history and dramatic ecological diversity have caused it to take on almost mythological status with travelers who find their way there. No matter how many hundreds of people visit the park, each traveler feels alone with nature.

Officially founded in 1944, the Big Bend National Park has been celebrated in photography before, but never has the entire region, including the Big Bend Ranch State Park, the territory between the historic towns like Alpine, Marfa, Terlingua and Marathon, and the vastness between the Pecos and the Rio Grande, been captured in one volume.
