The Santa Catalina Mountains north of Tucson--whose summit is called "Frog Mountain" by native Tohono O'odham people--offer citizens of a major metropolis a wilderness in their own backyard. Today recreational facilities dot the Catalinas' peaks, while housing developments creep up their foothills. Charles Bowden and Jack W. Dykinga here convey the natural beauty of the Catalinas and warn readers that this unique wilderness could easily be lost through easy access and overuse.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a beautifully written, handsomely illustrated love poem to a mountain range that has the fatal curse of being not merely too awesome in its beauty for its own good but, worse, too accessible to man."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"[Bowden's] prose trembles with a raw and vital energy missing from much current writing about the vital questions of wildness and wilderness."--New York Times Book Review

"This is one of the finest books on ecology in [the 1980s], for it delineates the creeping environmental degradation that occurs when a boomtown pushes toward a wilderness."--Publishers Weekly

"A microcosm . . . of the 'civilized' overuse of the entire planet."--Bloomsbury Review

"Anyone interested in the survival of our most precious natural places should read this book."--Bruce Babbitt
