Amarillo Flights book by Paul V. Chaplo (TAMU Press)
T. Lindsay Baker, well-known Texas historian writes: "The Staked Plains region, near level and treeless, has escarpments on three sides in the states of Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. From the air photographer Paul Chaplo sought out its most spectacular and significant areas, recording them for our intellectual enlightenment and visual delight. His photographs encompass not merely the three eroded edges of the plains but also the immensity of the flatness that they surround. This comprehensive panorama of the Southern Great Plains from above is unequaled in works of his predecessors."
