American byzantium : photographs of Las Vegas by Virgil Hancock( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographer Virgil Hancock documents the many faces of Las Vegas. The color photographs capture the glitzy hotel-palaces, the neon-saturated nights, the decaying buildings that are being torn down, the billboards, and the pop-culture fantasy playground atmosphere that characterizes the city. In addition to Hancock's introductory essay, writer Gregory McNamee relates in words what the photographer narrates visually, exposing a city of opulence, glamour, and fantasy, and poverty, decay, and despair
Sonora : an intimate geography by David Yetman( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This informal account explores the people, culture, land, and history of Sonora, Mexico. The author describes blistering deserts, alpine mountains, tropical river valleys, and arid coastlines and relates the lives and stories of cattlemen, lumbermen, fishermen, weavers, cobblers, musicians, bootleggers, and Indians. His curiosity extends to the weaving of Nacori hats, the distillation of fiery bacanora, and the utility of teguas, the Sonoran cowboy boot. Sonora is also a record of painful twentieth-century change - of human dislocation from rural villages to industrial cities and the relentless destruction of Sonoran forests, jungles, deserts, and rivers. A regular visitor for thirty years, the author provides a colorful portrait of the Sonora of the past, present, and future."--BOOK JACKET
