The Desert Is Theirs by Byrd Baylor with illustrations by Peter Parnall.
"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 Parnalls' striking illustrations limn the sky, stone and sand of the desert in this haungint book." back cover
