The curious traveler in search of greater knowledge will be certain to enjoy Diana Lindsay's latest book, Anza-Borrego A-Z. Written as a companion piece to The Anza-Borrego Desert Region, this encyclopedic dictionary covers more than 700 different people, places, and things that have figured prominently in the history of the Anza-Borrego Desert.

The grand scope of Anza-Borrego A-Z begins with an overview of the major historical periods of the region, including the early native cultures, the Spanish, Mexican, and American trailblazers, homesteaders, prospectors, and cattlemen, and ultimately the inclusion of the region in the California state park system. It is a sweeping look at the evolution of the Anza-Borrego Desert that is focused and well-written.

As with any encyclopedia, it is interesting to simply page through this book just to see what catches your eye. The names of people and places, some of which you may know and others that are wholly unfamiliar, make for entertaining reading and will expand your knowledge of the area's background.

Four-wheelers have been exploring the Anza-Borrego Desert for generations, and this book will undoubtedly add to their appreciation of this beautiful region.
