      ARAB/AMERICAN: LANDSCAPE, CULTURE, AND CUISINE IN TWO GREAT DESERTS

      by Gary Paul Nabhan       University of Arizona Press 

    ” Gary Nabhan is a Southwest treasure.  Recipient of the MacArthur Genius Award and the Society for Conservation Biology’s Lifetime Achievement Award, Nabhan has been tramping around deserts for years, opening windows for us on the appreciation and use of desert plants.  With this remarkable volume his pursuit of curious biological and cultural threads leads him, to his surprise, back to his ancestral homelands in the Middle East and opens further, fascinating windows on our own southwestern heritage and how people and their relationship to plants contributed to it.  This personal story of his wonderful discoveries is both timely and very enjoyable.  Those interested in the real Southwest won’t want to miss it.” – Sharon Gilbert & Paul Huddy
