A Better Way To Die, A Climber's Guide to Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon

Tim Toula
Another of Tim Toula's cult classics. This early guide provides a lot of history to the Sedona area, but is a poor substitute for more modern resources. That said, many adventures started with this book in hand! Thanks Tim.
