It's always exciting to hear of a new title to add to the long list of desert literature. Ben Estes from The Song Cave recently sent me a copy of The Desert by Brandon Shimoda, hot off the press! This is a book of poems and prose featuring the unique desert perspective of a WW2 Japanese internment camp resident. I realize that poetry is a challenge for a lot of us. This book fortunately has a section of present day journal entries that stands on its own, so it has something for everyone to discuss on January 7th, 2019 at Bernard Liebov's BOXO house.

Who among us has not dreamed of building a structure in the desert made of sandbags and plywood scraps? When I got my copy of Rancho Costa Nada by Phil Garlington, I knew that it was going to be a big hit with the Book Club. Much more than a how-to for building an affordable shelter in a harsh environment, this book slices through a complete section of desert culture. It is available new, used, digital and free from the author's website.

When I recently learned about The Devil's Highway by Luis Alberto Urrea I knew we had to get this serious desert book in front of our readers. This is a true tale of desert tragedy and survival when 26 men crossed the border from Mexico to Arizona through some of the toughest conditions one can imagine in May of 2001. We will be gathering at 7:00 pm, November 5th in Friendship Hall at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center. This is a new location for us and I can't wait to try it out!

Grab your best silk lined cape and Malacca cane because at 7 pm on September 3rd, we will be meeting at Andrea's house to discuss The Fellowship by Roger Friedland and Harold Zellman. It's the untold story of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Taliesin fellowship. Don't let the heft of this volume discourage you. It's chock-full of pictures and there's scandal on just about every page, so it reads rather quickly. If you run short on reading time, skip to page 335 where the adventure in the desert begins.

I am really excited to announce the book Relicts of a Beautiful Sea by Christopher Norment for the August 6th Desert Book Club meeting at 7:00 pm. Unlike most environmental books, filled with doom and gloom, this book is filled with hope and positive examples. It also is unique in that it describes our desert in terms of geologic time, which I found quite enlightening. Even if the latin animal names and the governmental topics slow you down, make sure you make it to the end to receive an inspirational message from Christopher to all of us.
