Abstract: On a material of modern books about the Ural/Yekaterinburg different aspects of the image of the region are discussed. Travelogues draw exotic image of the nature of the Urals, a number of creations by contemporary authors («Yoburg» (Ёбург) by A. Ivanov, «Nine Nineties» (Девять девяностых) by A. Matveeva) construct hard, but in one's own way heroic and romantic image of the 1990s. «Non-standard guide. Location» shows Yekaterinburg as a thriving city of European level. Book by Lukyanin and Nikulina, «Walks across Yekaterinburg» invites to a walk in the downtown of native city. Particular attention is paid to books designed for children and teenagers: «Journey to the Urals with children's writers» (2011), «Treasures of Riphean Mountains» by E. Lenkovskaya (2014). These books have great educational potential, as introduce not only the peculiarities of nature and history of the Ural cities, but also show respect for the masters, whose work gained the glory of the Urals as the region of labourers. These books combine authors’ personal memories and impressions with an extensive range of information. The material can be used as a part of an elective course on the Literature of the Urals, as well as school projects in literature, culture and history of native region.
