Title

The Desert: Further Studies in Natural Appearances

Description

In this book, an art historian and Rembrandt expert “set out to describe the desert from an aesthetic, not a scientific, point of view.”“Those things that can live in the desert become stamped after a time with a peculiar desert character . . .,” he writes, “not different than their kind, but more positive, more insistent.” His purple praise of the desert assured the public that it was safe to go there and enjoy oneself.
--Bill Broyles.
