Tom Zoellner is a fifth-generation Arizonan. He wanted to get a deeper understanding of his home state — so he walked across it.

The result is his new book, "Rim to River: Looking into the Heart of Arizona."

He talked about it March 22 at Changing Hands Bookstore in Phoenix. The Show spoke with him before the event and asked what prompted him to write the book.
