Location photos

Welcome to the website for my book the Roosevelt Gambit. I'm G. B. Eubanks and I would like to thank you for spending some time with me.

The pictures you will be seeing will take us on a trip into the Gila National Forest and to the Gila Cliff Dwellings. Along the way, I will relate the pictures to the pertinent portions of the book.

I'm afraid that any description I might have made, as you will see, did not do justice to the majesty of the Gila.
