Dune Country: A Naturalist's Look at the Plant Life of Southwestern Sand Dunes

Front Cover
University of Arizona Press, 1986 - Nature - 156 pages
Contrary to public perception, sand dunes are not barren piles of sand. They are alive with plant life. The dunes themselves even move, sometimes several inches a year. In Dune Country Janice Emily Bowers takes readers from New Mexico's White Sands to Utah's Coral Pink Dunes to the Death Valley dunes of California and beyond. Beautifully written and illustrated, Dune Country is a perfect introduction to the fragile ecosystems of sand dunes.
