I got this book a few years ago and during my first read-through, I really only focused on the survival bits and there was plenty of information for me even though I didn't really have any clue as to the different plants described (seeing as how I'm from the Midwest and NOT the far west). It inspired me to continue learning about the flora and fauna of my current landscapes. Presently, I'm taking a Nature Writing course in college and this book has been super helpful in my quest to find human expressions of nature in the desert. The stories told in this book allow readers to connect with the land in a deeper way than simply using certain kinds of plants for certain kinds of construction and so on. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on this book again so I can reread it!
