Book Talk Tuesday- May 13, 2008

Though not a guide book, Utah On My Mind is a great book for seeing some of the spectacular places around the state. This is more of a traditional coffee table book, full of color pictures by great photographers, including, Tom Till, Scott T. Smith, Jack Dykinga, and Howie Garber.

The photographs in the book cover the state from top to bottom and east to west. The rich, hot colors of the Colorado Plateau contrast with the cool greens and blues of the mountains and forests of northern Utah. The state's largest cities get some coverage as well as the smaller towns and rural settings. All four seasons are represented in a variety of landscapes.

If you are looking for a great book filled with the rich landscapes that Utah has to offer, this is a great book for you. If you have visited Utah and want a reminder of some of the places you have been or you have never been here before and want to see why you should visit, Utah On My Mind is the perfect book. For those of you who live in Utah, this book gives you reasons to explore the state even more.

This is a must have book. 5 out of 5 stars.
