Cacti of the Desert Southwest 
Price  Qty Available    Shopping Cart

by Meg Quinn (Paper)
The deserts of the American Southwest boast a remarkably diversity of drought-tolerant plant life, including many species found nowhere else on earth. And no group says desert quite like cacti. Their prickly nature notwithstanding, cacti and the desert habitats in which they reside are especially fragile. Indeed, Saguaro National Park and Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument were established primarily to protect the largest concentrations of these respective species. Others, such as the Pima pineapple cactus, are less conspicuous but also more rare and in need of special protection and conservation. 
 
Saguaro: The Desert Giant

by Anna Humphreys (Paper)
Ask a child to draw a picture of a cactus, and the result will probably look like a saguaro. Indeed, mass media have made this denizen of the Sonoran Desert universally recognizable, and perhaps just as misunderstood. In Saguaro: The Desert Giant, Anna Humphreys and Susan Lowell share true stories about this amazing, anthropomorphic cactus that are at least as intriguing as the folklore. A saguaro can grow to be a towering fifty feet or more and live for as long as two centuries. During rainy seasons, a large saguaro can soak up literally hundreds of gallons of water in its expandable, accordion-folded trunk and arms. For uncounted generations, the Tohono O’odham people in Arizona have harvested the sweet saguaro fruits to make syrup and wine. Profusely illustrated with contemporary and historic photographs and other artwork, Saguaro: The Desert Giant celebrates these iconic cacti while arguing that the need to preserve their critical Sonoran Desert habitat is more pressing now than ever.

by Sally McClain (Paper)
The Navajo language-notoriously difficult to translate under the best circumstances-proved an ideal top-secret medium for confounding the Japanese in World War II and transmitting combat intelligence quickly and accurately. It was the only code that the Japanese were never able to crack. Using first-person accounts, correspondence and Marine Corps documents, this remarkable story tells how Navajo code talkers worked together to create a unique "code-within-a-code," and serve their country in dangerous combat situations-a daring achievement that remained secret for twenty-four years.
