The great Sonoran Desert in the American Southwest teems with all manner of creatures and plant life. Seemingly asleep during the hot daylight hours (although many animals are astir), the desert awakes with activity after nightfall. This entertaining and educational coloring book abounds with realistically rendered illustrations of wildlife found in this area—from tiny lizards, an antelope jack rabbit and darting road runner, to a desert tortoise chewing on a beavertail cactus and a turkey vulture soaring on updrafts above the desert. Nature lovers will be thrilled with this collection, as will colorists of all ages. Dover Original. 29 plates of black-and-white illustrations and 5 in full color on covers. Introduction. Captions.
