Desert Giant: The World of the Saguaro Cactus

The venerable saguaro cactus stands like a statue in the Sonoran desert landscape, its armlike branches reaching fifty feet into the air. From a distance it appears quiet and solitary - but appearances can be deceptive. In fact, the saguaro is alive with activity, providing homes for woodpeckers owls and hawks, and food for bats, birds, coyotes and the indigenous people of the desert world.


"Captures the majesty of the desert environment and illuminates the ecological importance of this impressive giant." Kirkus, pointer review
