Title

The Desert Smells Like Rain: A Naturalist in Papago Indian Country

Description

“The desert is unpredictable, enigmatic,” naturalist Nabhan writes. “One minute you will be smelling dust. The next, the desert can smell just like rain.” Nabhan captures that thrill as he entwines his own research with native ways practiced for centuries by a truly desert people, the Tohono O’odham, or Papago, Indians. Whether gathering cactus fruit, or planting seeds for the next crop, or visiting relatives at an oasis, you can walk in the steps of these desert people.
--Bill Broyles.
