167 pp, oblong small 4to (10 1/2" H x 10 7/8" D), soft cover. ISBN 0810926695 Profusely illustrated with color photographs. "The Sonoran Desert of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico sizzles in the sun. Daytime temperatures common ly soar above 120F. The parched, mineral earth gets less than three inches of rainfall a year on average; some years, none at all. Yet this is one of the most fascinating and beautiful places in North America. A large variety of plants - cr e o s o t e bush, the fabled boojum, and numerous other cacti and succulents - flourish here, as do a wealth of birds, insects, and small mammals. Man is an uneasy resident, and, although modern cities such as Phoenix and Tucson survive on its fri ng es , th e na tural heart of the desert still rejects all but the most intrepid sojourners. Two who know this desert well are (the author and photographer of this book). Interwoven together, the personal visions of these two remarkable observers ev oke t he So nor an Desert with extraordinary power. We may or may not wish to be in the desert as they have been, but in these pages we will come as close as possible to being there." Price includes extra postage due to weight of book. Inter ior - cl ean an d t ight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor rubbing, a few tiny faint liquid marks on front cover, one light crease down spine, very minor corner wear. Very Good
