Synopsis

Cactus Desert by Donald M. Silver, Patricia J. Wynne

It's a sun-scorched world where clouds rarely come and nothing seems to move. That is, until children ages 6 - 9 up look a little closer to find tortoises, toads, and lizards, not to mention the scary rattlesnake and scorpion. Here, plants send their roots deep into the earth to find water, beetles stand on their head and shoot a stinky spray to fight off enemies, and roadrunners whiz by sleepy turtles and nervous desert mice on their way to ...where? Kids need only light clothes and a few simple pieces of equipment to explore the enchantments of cactus country.
