Desert Babies A-ZBook - 2005
Discover the softer side of the desert. Hidden among rocks, cacti, and tumbleweeds, many appealing desert babies come into the world. And here they are: mountain lion cubs, elf owlets, horned lizard hatchlings, quail chicks...and even very young jackrabbits. Insightfully described by nature writer Bill Broyles and expertly photographed in the wild by the husband-and-wife team of Paul and Joyce Berquist, these little critters will steal your heart away. 45 photos.About the series: Look West: What do you find? Wide, wild landscapes...extraordinary plants and animals...rugged people rich in history...ghost towns and working ranches...ancient pueblos and ultramodern urban areas. In the West, coyotes howl. Native Americans endure and flourish. Kokopelli, the mythical humpbacked flute player, prances across the cliff dwellings and into popular culture-and thousands of curio shops. Every small, handsome book in Rio Nuevo Publishers' Look West series presents a unique aspect of the American West. Using words and pictures, each volume explores a special Western topic or phenomenon, and all have been written and illustrated by regional experts. Each of these attractive 6 x 6-inch hardcover books contains 64 pages of text, illustrations, and photographs. And each one allows the reader to capture the spirit of the West in the palm of a hand.
