Publisher Comments:

McGinnies's book is an excellent review of all aspects of the Sonoran desert and its mountains: geographic, climatic, and geologic.—American Scientist

"This book provides a fascinating introduction to desert life in the Southwest."—True West

"This true labor of love by an outstanding arid lands authority will broaden horizons, deepen understanding, and heighten awareness of the debt we owe to the founders of the Desert Laboratory."—Arizona Highways

"A great source of revelation. . . . Easy and enjoyable to read and has left me with a great respect for the diversity of ways in which desert plants adapt to extremes."—Sylvia Martinelli, Journal of Arid Environments

Synopsis:

What's a desert? Whether you've lived in it for years or are just visiting, you may not know the desert as well as you suppose. Now you can share the experiences of the first U.S. scientists who set about discovering the nature of North American deserts.
