Logan "Dirtyverbs" Phillips was born and grew up in Cochise County, where the border was part of his everyday world.

Now, he's telling the whole world about this region - the "beautiful and the painful," he said.

His new book, Sonoran Strange, is a collection of works that focus on landscapes, history, people and events.

Phillips said he hopes readers will get a better understanding of this complicated society - often bilingual, bicultural and very diverse- which makes up the intricate fabric of Arizona and Sonora.
