Bob Sharp discusses his book, a moving call to action for effective settlement design and a beautiful weaving together of people and place.
There are eight distinct valley systems lying within the Gila watershed of southern Arizona. These beautiful valleys, teeming with culture and history, stand as a monument to the landscape and struggle of the American west. Bob Sharp, a former third-generation rancher, current photographer and large landscape designer, discusses the eight valley systems in his book, Eight Valleys: A Linked Landscape. This unique book is a collection of photography and local writing, a beautiful testament to the connection shared between humanity and the earth. The spirit of people and place is captured amidst Bob’s striking photographs, and within short essays written by noteworthy valley residents. The book is a moving call to action for effective settlement design, addressing threats facing these beautiful valleys so core to the sustainability of the region. Don’t miss this important opportunity to hear an enlightened voice speak about these threats with passion and wisdom.
