About this book

Based on a lifetime of peregrinations to the southwest deserts of the USA. Southwest Deserts: California & Nevada is specific to CA & NV, covering flora, fauna, and spectacular terrain. The intent of Southwest Deserts is to provide readers with images and text of what our beautiful deserts really have to offer. The author has met a large number of people who believe these deserts to be desolate wastelands without life, as most that travel though them never leave their vehicles to explore, and certainly don't seek out the better sites to take in the awesome beauty. The author's interests in these vast areas of intrigue began with an fascination with minerals, which through several encounters with a wide array of reptiles, led him into dabbling in herpetology, with succulent plants following, and eventually getting hooked on the entire gamut of flora, fauna, and terrain. Peruse the pages herein to witness some of the most awesome plants, animals, and scenery one could imagine. The colors, forms, and variations are truly breathtaking.
