Reviews

"With a provocative and engaging blend of personal narrative, literary criticism, and bioregional analysis, Lynch challenges his readers to develop new senses of desert places. Xerophilia promises to transform regional studies within and beyond the Southwest's customary borders." -- Audrey Goodman "author of Translating Southwestern Landscapes"
