Explore the vast spaces of the Mojave desert in these two evocative tales that celebrate imagination and the creative urges that transcend limitations of isolation and environment. Life in the Mojave desert is challenging but rich for those who dwell there. Meet Ma and Pa, lovers and dreamers, and their many mysterious children. Explore a spirit-haunted desert ghost town with visionary Lily and her young, confused parents. "Spirit Children of the Mojave" combines flavors of magic realism with flights of poetic prose and down-to-earth descriptions of the California desert to create a wonderfully complex and uplifting story.
