Lamberton's love of all things Arizona is evident in his exuberant writing, and the excitement is contagious. Each chapter left me curious, itching to explore, taste, and experience it for myself.
—Edible Baja Arizona
Ken is not only a master storyteller who spews out lovely sentences at nearly every turn but is an enthusiastic fan of Arizona history. This is quite simply a keeper—enjoyable without being silly, and well-researched without being stuffy.
—Gary P. Nabhan, author of Cumin, Camels, and Caravans: A Spice Odyssey
I love reading a good writer. And it's even better when the author writes about a subject I love. Ken Lamberton's Chasing Arizona is a collection of memorable essays about the state we love. As entertaining as he is curiously profound, Lamberton is Arizona's 21st Century Thoreau, blessed with the depth, eye, and patience of Joseph Wood Krutch, and the delicious literary flair of the late Charles Bowden.
Ken Lamberton's Chasing Arizona is a book full of fascinating information, surprising insights, good humor and wonderful writing. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
—Thomas Cobb, author of With Blood in Their Eyes.
