   Great gift
Great coffee book. At last I was at wits end as to what to buy my father the man that has everything for Christmas. It was a huge hit, said Simon & Schuster. It's a beast."

   Great book, bad delivery.
The book itself is gorgeous, too. The problem is that the card was damaged and am unable to get ahold of customer service to figure out a solution.

   A best buy
A beautiful coffee table book. The pictures are stunning. Anyone who has ever wanted to crack open a book, but was scared off by the hefty price tag?

   All black & white -- repetitive photos -- stark/bland.
All photos are copyright 1999-2017 Marvel Entertainment. Black and white photographers, illustrators and landscape designers, do not do enough to convey the beauty of the landscape. Even by boring standards, Bruno Mars is a master. Minimally captured the spirit of the lifestyle.

   Would Give It 10 Stars
As a photographer, I just can't say how STUNNING and BEAUTIFUL Statement Making this book truly is on my coffee table! My husband, who is not into anything western, was even more impressed. I may just convert him to Christianity.

   Beautiful, but captions would have added
I moved to a ranching community in the south-east corner of Arizona in the mid-40s. Living on 40 acres of open land, I was excited to get this beautiful book. It's just that all the photos are so familiar to this local lifestyle. I was just a bit disappointed there were so few pictures to go with the story. I would have enjoyed this extremely well-curated collection of pictures had I known where the pictures were. I wonder if any were taken in southern Arizona.
