From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5-- A lovely, gentle tribute to and extension of "Home on the Range." Geis has added six new verses to the familiar song, each of which reveres a different aspect of the Southwest or one of its plants or animals. Thirteen illustrations capture the beauty of the land in watercolors that are more richly textured and deeper in color than much of the work in this medium. Petroglyphs drawn in muted sepia are scattered throughout, heightening the timeless qualities of the illustrations while hinting at the place of ancient natives in the area. Most children will enjoy the familiarity of the song, coupled with the beauty of the pictures. Adults will appreciate the glossary that gives information on all plants and animals mentioned. The music is not included, but it shouldn't be difficult to find it. A book for the young to enjoy and the older to ponder as many of the flora and fauna found here are endangered. --Jody McCoy, Casady School, Oklahoma City

From Publishers Weekly:

In this pleasingly nostalgic paean to the American Southwest, Geis expands on the lyrics to "Home on the Range." Her melodic verse pays homage to the area's plant and animal life: "Oh, show me a land / Where the tall saguaros stand / And the coyotes and jack rabbits run, / Where the Gila lies still, / As the green rat snake will, / In the warmth of the hot morning sun." The book's imaginative design features reproductions of petroglyphs that surround both the text and Geis's polished, loosely rendered watercolors, which splendidly showcase the region's diverse landscape. A concluding glossary describes the area's unique flora and fauna mentioned in the text. The song's resonance makes Geis's first picture book ideal for singing aloud at bedtime: "How often at night, / When the heavens are bright / With the light of the twinkling stars, / Have I stood here amazed / And asked as I gazed / If their glory exceeds that of ours." Ages 5-8.
