Palo Duro Vistas

by MacLeod, William


"Palo Duro Danyon is one of the most photogenic places in Texas. The wonderful array of subtle hues from the rock layers contrasted against the lush vegetation and bright red shale along the canyon floor creates a setting that is unmatched in the southwest."

So begins the introduction to Palo Duro Vistas, the story of Palo Duro Canyon from its earliest days as mud flats in a Permian lagoon to the development of the State Park in the twentieth century. Palo Duro Vistas is illustrated with vivid photographs, maps and diagrams describing and explaining the geology and the interesting history of the park area. Let the book be your personal guide as you travel from the town of Canyon to the end of the paved road in Palo Duro State Park.

This is the third in the acclaimed "Vista" series from William MacLeod, dedicated to making the geology of Texas interesting to read and easy to understand.
