In the wake of last fall's upgrade of Southern Colorado's Great Sand Dunes to national-park status, a book celebrating the natural treasure couldn't be more timely. With that in mind, Golden's Fulcrum Publishing has released a beauty that would look fine on anybody's coffee table: Valley of the Dunes: Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. The book features text by Colorado naturalist Audrey DeLella Benedict; breathtaking images by Denver-based, internationally known photography team Wendy Shattil and Bob Rozinski; and a foreword by Senator Ken Salazar, a San Luis Valley native. They'll all appear today at a 4 p.m. book signing at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th Street; for details, call 303-436-1070 or visit www.tatteredcover.com.
