The Illuminated Desert is a stunning dialogue between painting and prose by two daughters of the Colorado Plateau: Terry Tempest Williams and Chloe Hedden. This is more than an "abecedarian" or Alphabet Book. It is an exquisite rendering of the red rock canyons of southern Utah and the natural history that evokes a poetry of place.

The audience for this book is the audience of the desert itself, beginning with the children and shared with adults in discovery and delight.
