About this book

A rare and wonderful combination of lyrical writing, natural history, and fine art. The author reveals the hidden life thriving in the deserts of the American Southwest, from the tiny fairy shrimp to the regal sagauro cactus. Her witty, factual, and heartfelt reflections combine with Caldwell's beautiful illustrations to illuminate the ways and mythologies of forty eccentric plants and animals.
