KIRKUS REVIEW

Vivid full-color photos propel the viewer into the drama of daily life in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and California. The many close-up shots of rarely seen desert inhabitants are especially captivating: a desert tortoise feasting on juicy prickly-pear cactus fruits; a long-nosed bat drinking nectar from a night-blooming century plant; a spadefoot toad waking from his ten-month sleep to breed in the spring's first flooding rain. The brief text adds many fascinating details. No index.
