I am delighted to present TUMACÁCORI GOLD, a fiction adventure novel of good verses evil, packed with factual history, mystery, suspense and a touch of romance. Based on the uncanny discovery of a whirlpool vortex on the Colorado River which is rapidly depleting Arizona's precious life-sustaining water, Logan Price, a desert biologist and ghost town adventurer, travels deep into the mystifying labyrinth of the Grand Canyon to locate and destroy the threatening anomaly before the state is turned into another Sahara Desert. Logan's meticulous investigation of the diminishing whitewater rapids unexpectedly leads him to an enchanted, romantic encounter with a beautiful Indian princess, the shocking discovery of a lost, ancient civilization that time has forgotten, a hair-raising journey into a perilous world that lies far beyond the confines of reality, and finally, the amazing discovery of an enormous mountain of gold of untold worth, know as the lost Tumacacori gold. But as Logan unearths the vast fortune in gold, the heroic desert biologist suddenly realizes that the gold isn't the only treasure that lies beneath the dry and cavernous desert as he miraculously turns the desiccated Arizona desert into a garden of Eden.

Preface This Illustrated Dictionary of Physical Geography is the result of my reactions to problems I faced teaching geography in public secondary schools in an urban envi­ronment. I was never surprised by the fact that geographical knowledge among my students was minimal, for this condition seems to be a nationwide phenomenon. More to the point, students seemed to have difficulty understanding many geo­graphical concepts without some visual aids to learning. I found that if I illustrated a geographical term on the chalkboard, students could more easily comprehend it. This seemed to be true of all my students from the native born to the "newcomer." The story doesn't end here. In my researching geographical terms, I found vagueness and confusion in the vocabulary of this subject. The Caspian Sea is really a salt lake. One region's hill is another's mountain, and a creek in some places would seem like a river to visitors from arid places. Confusion notwithstanding, geography teachers need all the help that they can get in building the student's vocabulary; I hope that this dictionary will be of good use. I have italicized the defined words found in this dictionary for easy cross reference. Henry T. Conserva Sonoma, California
