The desert landscape has always enchanted me, perhaps because it is so unfamiliar. Diane Siebert captures the magic of the Mojave through her clever poetry, as well as Wendell Minor's captivating paintings. The last lines are my favorite: "I am the desert. I am free. Come walk the sweeping face of me." ...more

This is a gorgeous book. Minor's art is gritty like the sand of the desert the book is based on, and Siebert speaks as though the desert as an entity is a poet writing about jack rabbits, ravens, burros, mustangs, rocks, and so on. It's a great, cohesive theme, and the words and illustrations fit together. ...more
