Brown, John Journey into the Desert.

Photos by the author. ISBN 0-19-515777-X. New York: Oxford University Press, 2002. 48 pp. $18.95. The beautiful photographs and highly readable, interesting text make this the perfect reference for the elementary student doing a book report on the Sonoran Desert. The two-page synopsis on each aspect of the desert, told in the form of a camping journal, walks the reader through survival tips and describes the vegetation, wildlife, and people of the desert. A plea for preservation of, and respect for, this wonder of nature concludes this visually stimulating book. Ages 5 up. Reviewed by Gwen Matz, Blue Mountain School District, Orwigsburg, PA
