On the hottest
summer afternoons
when desert creatures
look for shade
and stay close to the earth
and keep their voices low
I sit high on a cactus
and fling
my loud ringing trill
out to the sun...
So sings the Cactus Wren, one of the ten desert creatures that speaks for itself in the evocative and lyrical verses of Desert Voices. In both text and illustration, Desert Voices conveys a message of spirit and courage from the shy and quiet creatures of the beautiful desert land.
