Book of Answers
By David Wentworth Lazaroff

Whether you're an armchair explorer curious about the desert's many "exotic" plants and animals, or a long-time resident trying to negotiate a truce with a persistent packrat or woodpecker percussionist, settle back and enjoy your journey of discovery. You're certain to learn a thing or two that will change forever the way you look at desert life. Here are few examples of the questions covered.

  • What exactly is a desert?
  • How do I keep rattlesnakes out of my yard?
  • How to keep dangerous scorpions and spiders out of my house?
  • How do I attract hummingbirds to my yard?
  • What should I take on a desert hike?
  • How can I protect my pets from coyotes and bobcats?
  • What's the oldest living things in the desert?
  • Are Gila monsters dangerous?

Supplemented with nearly 100 illustrations, this 200 page book is broken down into three sections:

  • Getting to know the desert
  • The desert as one's backyard,
  • Enjoying the desert.

Seven useful appendixes cover a range of topics including hummingbird gardening, venomous bites and stings, climate, and additional sources of information about desert life. A fun way to learn how wild and fascinating our deserts really are!
