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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
