Ode to the Desert by Tamara Becerra Valdez

Ode to the Desert by Tamara Becerra Valdez


"Water, water, water... There is no shortage of water in the desert but exactly the right amount, a perfect ratio of water to rock, water to sand, insuring that wide free open, generous spacing among plants and animals, homes and towns and cities which makes the arid West so different from any other part of the nation. There is no lack of water here unless you try to establish a city where no city should be." - Edward Abbey

A field guide featuring native plant profiles from some of the most prolific medicinals of the Pecos region, herbal preparations for the adventurous, drawings, poetry, and Texas folk songs. This pamphlet draws its inspiration from the the ideas and stories that make this desolate region of Texas so unique and remarkable. 

Each guide folds out beautifully to a large 18x24 poster of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
