A massive, parched region, its varied terrain rolls eastward from the Antelope Valley to the Colorado River.

The nations highest temperature on record occurred in this region- on the other extreme, the freezing winters here shroud the land in ice and snow. This thirsty expanse climbs to over 4,000 feet, with a great number of different wildlife forms making their homes among the hills. Featuring over 200 evocative and illustrative images, The Mojave Desert is an entertaining and educational source of information about the area and its unique history.
