The Desert is Theirs
- 1976 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award Honor Book (Picture Book)
- 1976 Caldecott Medal Honor Book
You may think of the desert as a harsh, dry place where no one would ever want to live -- but think again.
The Desert People know. so do the animals. Both love the land, and "share the feeling of being brothers in the desert, of being desert creatures together."
Byrd Baylor's spare, poetic text and Peter Parnall's striking illustrations lime the sky, stone and sand of the desert in this haunting book.
