Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—An in-depth look at a vibrant ecosystem. Spilling over the Mexican border into Arizona and New Mexico, the Sonoran Desert is especially rich in varied plants, animals, insects, and other critters that call it home. Lynch shares his expertise and experiences in a clearly written, conversational text, lavishly illustrated with his own crisp color photos. From bighorn sheep to Gila monsters to creosote bushes, the author presents the variegated panoply of landscapes and life-forms in this challenging environment. More demanding than Kelley MacAulay's A Desert Habitat (Crabtree, 2006), which also focuses on the Sonoran Desert, this engaging work is eye-catching and informative.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
Kim Hutmacher
I highly recommend this title for classroom use. I have not seen a better book for the study of the Sonoran Desert ecosystem.
