The Mystic Mid-Region: The Deserts of the Southwest

Learn about the deserts of the Southwest USA!

Between the lofty ranges of mountains which mark the western boundary of the great Mississippi Valley and the chain of peaks known as the Coast Range, whose western sunny slopes look out over the waters of the placid Pacific, lies a vast stretch of country once known as the “Great American Desert.”

This living book about the deserts of the Southwest has it all – geography, science, humanities, and culture!

Learn about the curious plants and animals that call the desert their home. You can also read about the indigenous peoples who live there, their lifestyle, homes, and how the discovery of borax and other minerals changed their way of life.
