About this title


The Illuminated Desert is a stunning dialogue in painting and prose by two daughters of the Colorado Plateau:  Terry Tempest Williams and Chloe Hedden.  This is more than an abecedarian, or alphabet book.  It is an exquisite rendering of life in the red rock canyons of Southern Utah and the natural history that evokes a poetry of place.  The audience for this book is the audience of the desert itself, from children to adults who share in discovery and delight.

About the Author:

Terry Tempest Williams has been a resident of Castle Valley, Utah since 1998. She is the author of two children's books, The Secret Language of Snow and Between Cattails. Her other books include Refuge; Red: Passion and Patience in the Desert; The Open Space of Democracy; and Finding Beauty in a Broken World.
Chloe Hedden is a native of Castle Valley, Utah. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated with honors in Illustration. Chloe thinks of light as visual poetry and wants to share her love of the desert by the only means she knows: her paintbrush. This is her first book.
