Frog Mountain Blues by Charles Bowden is a magical – and sad – book about the Catalina Mountains. There are personal remembrances and experiences, history, interviews and pictures mixed together to form a story about the Mountain and the changes to it over time. You may not agree with all of Bowden’s views – but regardless this is a powerful story largely about what we have, or may, loose because of the way we have treated/used the Santa Catalina Mountains.
Frog Mountain Blues features pictures by Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Jack Dykinga who is well known for his stunning pictures of Arizona.
