Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This revised edition puts the reader up-to-date with the many changes that have resulted in the desert, to-wit: the influx of settlers, the expansion of agriculture, the building of modern roads and towns, and the use of some of the deserts' most wild and attractive parts by the Army and Navy for testing modern weapons of warfare.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book, written in 1965, is still a fine introduction to the deserts of Southern California. It is not a textbook and not the end-all of desert books, but it is a concise, easy to read introduction to the subject. Jaeger was an excellent naturalist and his love of the subject shows in the writing.

If you are interested in this part of the country, just curious, or need a starting place for a class or research, this is your book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fairly slim book, easy to read. Illustrations are black and white line drawings. This is not an exhaustive natural history guide of the California deserts. You might still want to pick up some other books with color photos for plant identification and such. But this book will still give you some insights on the desert not available elsewhere.
