This is the fifth title in our highly-praised Our Wild World Ecosystem series. Once again, author/photographer Wayne Lynch takes readers on a personal journey through a treasured North American ecosystem. Amazing photography, first-person anecdotes, and tons of factual information on the animals, plants, climate and landscape come together to give a complete picture of the ecosystem in action. Subjects cover the wide diversity of living things in this habitat from the giant saguaro cactus and ocotillo to javelinas and dozens of desert birds. And of course rattlesnakes! This gorgeous book is a feast for both the eyes and mind.
Dr. Wayne Lynch has published more than 25 books for children on nature and wildlife. He is Canada's best-known and most widely published professional wildlife photographer. He lives in Calgary with his wife, writer Aubrey Lang.
