A Dozen Fascinating Trips into the 4 States that Makeup Indian Country Leave behind your everyday life and drive into the heart of a very different place from most American cities, a place that is much the same as it was hundreds of years ago. This guide offers all the information you'll need to travel off the beaten path in the culturally fascinating region of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah known as the Four Comers. Walk through ruins once inhabited by ancient peoples; stand at the edge of the Grand Canyon; ride a narrow-gauge railroad through traditional Native American hunting grounds; and witness colorful ceremonial dances in vibrant, living villages. Backroads & Byways of Indian Country's 12 itineraries take you places other guides won't. They'll introduce you to the tribes of the Colorado plateau and take you to well-known and little-known Ancestral Puebloan ruins. Discover Indian Country's incredible beauty and the genuine warmth of its people. Some of the most iconic places in the Southwest are here-Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Bryce Canyon-but they are only the beginning. Author Teresa Bitler provides the inside knowledge of a local and the keen eye of a travel writer, and this guide makes the lands and people of the Four Comers accessible to travelers-it's the shortest route a visitor can take to explore like a native and the best guide for natives delving more deeply into their home region. Each chapter includes the best lodging and dining options and detailed maps; an appendix lists ruins, petroglyph sites, cultural centers, and trading posts throughout the Southwest. "Things to Know" details etiquette to follow when visiting ruins and villages, as well as information on driving conditions, time zones, selecting a tour guide, tipping, and purchasing crafts. Get ready for an unforgettable experience. Book jacket.
