In this book, the author, an award-winning naturalist, describes the flora and fauna of the Chihauhuan, Sonoran, Mohave, and Great Basin deserts of the American Southwest. From how desert snails retain moisture to the movements of sand dunes, she captures the spirit of the land. Her illustrations were not available at review time, but judging from her previous works, A Desert Country Near the Sea: A Natural History of Cape Region of Baja California ( LJ 9/1/83), Wind in The Rock ( LJ 10/1/78), and Run, River, Run: A Naturalist's Journey Down One of the Great Rivers of the West (Univ. of Arizona Pr., 1984), they will be accurate and appealing. Excellent nature writing for a general audience.

Personal surveys of several American deserts led to this commentary on their landforms, climate and wildlife. "Zwinger offers a compelling, vicarious experience . . . a masterly interpretation of these mysterious lands," judged PW.
