About this book

A magnificent illustrated journey into California's famed deserts and the astonishingly abundant life they contain.

From Obi Kaufmann, author-illustrator of the best-selling California Field Atlas comes a grand adventure through time, geography, and ecology in California's deserts. Of a piece with his richly illustrated books The Forests of California and The Coasts of California, this volume features hundreds of vivid watercolour maps and illustrations, blending art and science to breathtaking effect. Journeying through the Great Basin, Mojave, Colorado, and Sonoran Deserts, Kaufmann pays special attention to national and state parks and monuments, and to the dozens of wilderness areas that reveal the underappreciated natural abundance of California's arid lands. From Joshua Tree to Death Valley, these deserts full of life, as Kaufmann evokes them, are perfect places for meditating on our future, and for imagining a California that might thrive beyond the age of climate breakdown. The Deserts of California is a canonical entry into the literature of the American deserts, uniquely colourful and celebratory, and abounding in hope and wonder.
