I bought this book when I moved out to Nevada. At that time there weren't a lot of desert gardening books around and I found this one very useful, though it dealt with gardening in Arizona, which has a slightly different climate. It's also an intelligent book with a sense of humor which I enjoyed reading. It gives a lot of dos and don'ts, particularly with regard to general plant care, what to do what time of year, etc. It won't be much help with plant selection -- for that you need something specific to your local area. If you are new to desert gardening, this is a good book to have.
Review: Desert GardeningUser Review - Goodreads
Gardening in Arizona is so different than gardening in the rest of the country. Without this book my garden would be nothing but a series of heartbreaking failures. Invaluable information.
