Longtime Arizona travel writer Roger Naylor has written hiking guides, driving guides and guides to the state parks of Arizona. And now, he’s out with a new book that takes a slightly different tack.

"Awesome Arizona: 200 Amazing Facts about the Grand Canyon State" is almost an encyclopedia of interesting tidbits about the state —  from the fact that we are the only state where you can find one of the seven wonders of the world to some more archaic findings. 

The Show talked with Naylor about the project and why he took this approach to begin with.
