This book is the third work in a series in which Susan Lipper has been exploring the actual and mythological American landscape. The intensity of the sun feels like it was burnt through the exposures straight onto the luscious, tri-tone printed pages of the book to reveal crisp desert vistas full of rich details and subtle layers that reward repeated readings. This is not your forefathers desert.
