New West Magazine
"Part of the charm of living in Colorado is our access to stunning desert canyonlands, which is why the travel-sized CANYON WILDERNESS OF THE SOUTHWEST (May, Welcome Books) is a must-have if you're road-tripping to Utah or Arizona.
Celebrated travel and nature photographer Jon Ortner has captured the otherworldly landscapes of the Colorado Plateau in vivid, dramatic detail that will inspire your journey through red rocks, hoodoos, arches, and sand dunes. Use it as a guide or simply as a complement to your own 'visual odyssey.'"
5280 Magazine, Denver
“It has taken me a while to believe how incredible Jon Ortner's book actually is--especially for its size! A synesthetic reality! I can smell the sandstone, hear the heat popping off the rock, and feel the water on my feet just by looking at these most vivid of all other photographs. Jon makes you feel as if you are there behind the lens, feeling the wild landscapes and canyons all around you!”
Katie Lee, author of All My Rivers are Gone
"This is an indescribably sublime book, a testament to the power of our saved and sacred places to transform our lives, rearrange our molecules and make of us all, as John Muir would say, 'kindred spirits.'"
Ken Burns, Award-winning documentary filmmaker
"...the epitome of color panoramic film photography...the definitive pictorial to the American Southwest...the joy of seeing through his magical eye what we might never see in person."
Kodak ProPass Magazine.
"A traveler's mini edition...and a wonderful one at that, containing 200 photographs that present a stunning panorama of the western wilderness. The price is right and the book is terrific & shy; for your coffee table, for a gift, as a collectible."
