Larry Lindahl

"The Ancient Southwest: A Guide to Archaeological Sites" by Gregory McNamee and Larry Lindahl. Larry is the photographer for this book. Gregory McNamee guides you on a memorable tour through 50 national and state parks, monuments, and other cherished sites in the modern American Southwest. Simultaneously, he leads you far back in time, to the eras when the earliest human beings lived in what is now Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah. These ancient people left intriguing clues: pueblos, tools, pottery, jewelry, baskets, petroglyphs, pictographs, clothing, kivas, and weavings. From such evidence, archaeologists can reconstruct sophisticated cultures with advanced knowledge of astronomy, architecture, agriculture, and art. In more than 130 spectacular photographs, Larry Lindahl captures the essence of these remarkable locations, including Mesa Verde National Park, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Navajo National Monument, Chaco Culture National Historic Park, Canyonlands National Park, and many more. New Mexico Kicks on Route 66 Larry was the photographer. The Mother Road, opened in 1926 and decommissioned in 1984, played a prominent role in the transformation of the nation. Now an international legend through popular culture and the arts, Route 66 has become the road trip of a lifetime. New Mexico Kicks on Route 66 takes you on a tour through all the fun places along the New Mexico stretch, steeped in the rich and diverse history of the Land of Enchantment. Author Martin Link guides you through time across the land populated by mammoth hunters, Pueblo farmers, traders, Spanish conquistadors, army cavalrymen, caravans of settlers, railroaders, and the scientists who created the atom bomb. And through Larry Lindahl s amazing images, you ll encounter museums full of classic cars, the Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial, a hot air balloon fiesta, and all the glitz and glamour of the Route 66 era in hotels, diners, and more. From the indigenous people who first developed the area, to the folks who envisioned and created America s Highway, and to all the colorful personalities in between and since, this is a New Mexico historical guidebook like no other. Arizona Kicks on Route 66 Larry is the photographer Arizona is home to the longest intact portion of Route 66, stretching 158 miles from west of Ash Fork to the California border. In words and pictures, Naylor and Lindahl explore the history and nostalgia surrounding the Mother Road, and the great swaths of Arizona that it passes through. They describe a wealth of spectacular and easy side trips that surround the highway. Arizona, the birthplace of Route 66, is where you can still get your kicks. Secret Sedona: Sacred Moments in the Landscape Secret Sedona: Sacred Moments in the Landscape takes the reader on an armchair journey to special places resonating with the intimate spirit of nature and ancient peoples. The monumental landscape embodies secret waterfalls, meadows embroidered with delicate wildflowers, ancient cliff dwellings, and many more oh-wow scenes of canyons, mesas, and sandstone wonderlands. Vignettes written by the author-photographer share his wilderness experiences of seeing fog dancing with the red rocks, encountering a rattlesnake on a cliff ledge, smelling the warm summer fragrance of a wild cliff rose, and visiting places occupied by ancient peoples. Contents will appeal to readers who enjoy the works of writers such as Mary Austin, John C. Van Dyke, Barbara Kingsolver, Aldo Leopold, and Ann Zwinger.
