Easy Field Guide To Common Desert Cactus
North America's desert include areas in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah. This field guide will enable you to identify the most common species of cacti found in the Southwestern deserts of the United States. Cactus which are rare or difficult to identify have been omitted, making it quicker and easier to learn the more common species.
There is a real pleasure to be had from gaining a fundamental, practical knowledge of your surroundings;
and what begins as a casual interest may develop into a hobby or, in some cases a career. A checklist is included in the back of this book so you may keep a record of the cacti you observe.
Whatever you interest, enjoy them, but please do not dig them up or otherwise injure them.
