Virtually untraveled, the Sierra Pinacate in northwestern Mexico beckons adventurers and scientists. From prehistoric times until today, legend tells of giants, men and animals, bottomless pits, endless tunnels, hostile Indians, smoking caverns, and other dangers. Here, in words and pictures, is a remarkable introduction to this place of almost surreal beauty. 23 color photos.

Portrait

A field archaeologist by avocation, Julian Hayden (1911-1998) began exploring and mapping the Sierra Pinacate in 1958. His pioneering work, innovative theories, lively curiosity, and distinctive personality made him legendary among southwestern scholars and desert rats. He was the author of three books and numerous scholarly articles, chapters, and reviews. He died in Tucson at the age of 87.
