Southern Arizona is a not only a world-class travel destination, it's also a region with so many natural attractions that even its residents never run out of places to explore. The Southern Arizona Nature Almanac reveals the incredible diversity of the desert Southwest by highlighting its most compelling features and natural phenomena for each month of the year: blooming plants, wildlife activity, places to visit, weather, and prominent constellations. From migratory birds to snakes to insects, the almanac will show you what to expect in the sky or under your feet, no matter what season you venture out. In addition to original illustrations by Jonathan Hanson, the guide includes photos and weather charts. Handy appendixes include lists of birds, mammals, reptiles, butterflies, and a desert plants "blooming calendar." Accessible to the fledgling naturalist and detailed enough for the natural scientist, the Southern Arizona Nature Almanac is a definitive resource guide to the natural wonders of this fascinating land.

"This fine book offers one-stop shopping for authoritative answers to all your questions about a most wonderful place, the Sonoran Desert. Bees, birds, beetles, biodiversity, all right here in one place in accessible prose. Who can ask for more than that?"--John Alcock, author of In a Desert Garden "Definitive and delightful--a fabulous compendium of facts and experiences written by the most knowledgable scholars in the field. This encyclopedic guide will make desert rats out of those who aren't already."--Ann H. Zwinger, author of Run, River, Run "Once in a generation, a guide to understanding a major North American landscape comes along. This book is such a touchstone, sure to become a classic. The emphasis here is on biodiversity, mutualism, co-evolution, and, especially, ethno-relationships--the long history of connection between desert peoples and their homeland, on both sides of the border. This book gives desert dwellers everything they need to develop the crucial awareness, to say, 'This is a remarkable place, filled with astonishing creatures and processes. We must act now, with fierceness and tenderness, or it will be gone.'"--Stephen Trimble, author of The Sagebrush Ocean

Bold and impassioned, sharp and defiant, Leslie Marmon Silko's essays evoke the spirit and voice of Native Americans. Whether she is exploring the vital importance literature and language play in Native American heritage, illuminating the inseparability of the land and the Native American people, enlivening the ways and wisdom of the old-time people, or exploding in outrage over the government's long-standing, racist treatment of Native Americans, Silko does so with eloquence and power, born from her profound devotion to all that is Native American. Yellow Woman and a Beauty of the Spirit is written with the fire of necessity. Silko's call to be heard is unmistakable; there are stories to remember, injustices to redress, ways of life to preserve. It is a work of major importance, filled with indispensable truths--a work by an author with an original voice and a unique access to both worlds.
