Sonoran Desert
by Jack W. Dykinga

A rich feast for the eyes by seasoned photographer Jack Dykinga. Far from being a stereotypical desert landscape, Dykinga reveals the beauty--from springtime flowerings to mid winter snow flurries--of this uniquely North American desert. A truly sumptuous presentation.
Amazon.com Review
The vast Sonoran Desert, which stretches from southern Arizona and southeastern California far into Mexico, offers mysteries aplenty to uninitiated travelers and longtime desert rats alike. Pulitzer prize-winning photographer Jack Dykinga has been wandering its lonelier stretches for years, and the images he conjures up in The Sonoran Desert make for a rare and bounteous feast. He has a special fondness for cactus and boojum studded horizons, withered landscapes at high noon, and the arid shores of the Sea of Cortez, and no one has captured the essence of the place quite so well. The text by Charles Bowden, himself a noted desert traveler, is an added attraction to a first-rate collection of photographs.
