I am the desert.
I am free
Come walk the sweeping face of me.
Tumbleweeds bounce and roll along the ground. Lizards dart, tortoises creep, and snakes glide out of sight.The Mojave Desert is a special place. Its landscape is powerful and mesmerizing.
Here is an extraordinary celebration of this vast and ever-changing wonder for readers and nature lovers of all ages.
