The members of Peaks Plateaus and Canyons Association (PPCA) along with author Craig Childs, editor L. Greer Price and designer Carol Haralson are thrilled to announce that our new book Flying Home, The Colorado Plateau from Above and Below was named Publication of the Year for organizations making less than $1.5 million by the Public Lands Alliance at their annual conference this February.
A true labor of love, Flying Home was conceived as a fitting end to PPCA’s 12-year-long project of publishing Sojourns, a twice-yearly journal which many PPCA members had used as a membership tool. “We are extremely lucky to have friends like Craig Childs and so many incredible photographers and artists who have enjoyed being part of Sojourns over the years.
When we made the call about this project, they were all excited to participate. We could never have pulled off a project of this magnitude without their talent and support,” said Sue Husch, PPCA Administrator. Editor Greer Price added, “All of us entered into this project with a desire to make it the best it could be, and the final results show it.
It’s particularly gratifying to have others recognize that, as well. Now, more than ever, we all need to do what we can to inspire others to care as deeply as we do about our public lands. This is our contribution to that effort.” The members of PPCA are proud to be part of the Public Lands community.
In addition to PPCA’s award, several PPCA member organizations were presented Honorable Mentions:
