Library: The Deserts of California

| /

From Obi Kaufmann, author-illustrator of the best-selling California Field Atlas, comes a grand adventure through time, geography, and ecology in California’s deserts. The Deserts of California features an abundance of watercolor maps and paintings, blending art and science to breathtaking effect. Journeying through the Great Basin, Mojave, Colorado, and Sonoran Deserts, Kaufmann pays special attention to national and state parks and monuments, and to the dozens of wilderness areas that reveal the under-appreciated natural abundance of California’s arid lands.

Full of illuminating infographics, maps, and wonderfully observed wildlife watercolors. A perfect gift for the California outdoor enthusiast.
