The Desert Is Theirs

The Desert Is Theirs
Written by: Byrd Baylor
Illustrated by: Peter Parnall

Elementary Grades

"You may think of the desert as a harsh, dry place where no one would ever want to live -- but think again. The Desert People know, and so do the animals. Both love the land and, "share the feeling of being brothers in the desert, of being desert creatures together." Byrd Baylor's spare, poetic text and Peter Parnall's striking illustrations lime the sky, stone and sand of the desert in this haunting book"
