Synopsis

Here Is the Southwestern Desert by Madeleine Dunphy

Despite its stark landscape and harsh climate, the Sonoran Desert teems with life. Hare, hawks, lizards, bobcats, badgers, coyote all live among the desert s fragrant mesquite and spiny cactus, and none can exist without the others. Madeleine Dunphy s poetic text explores all the warm and native elements that make the American Southwest such a mystical place, while Anne Coe's stunning paintings portray the desert s plants and animals as well as the dazzling colors reflected in the rocks and skies of the Sonoran Desert.

Reviews

Dunphy's cumulative poem explores the interrelationships between the living and nonliving elements of the Sonoran Desert. ... Coe's luminous artwork includes both panoramic backgrounds and vibrant action close-ups that will appeal to young and old alike.
