Various fiction and non-fiction books that relate to deserts



  • “The desert tells a different story every time one ventures on it.” - Robert Edison Fulton, Jr.

  • “I have never been in a natural place and felt that it was a waste of time. I never have. And it's a relief. If I'm walking around a desert or whatever, every second is worthwhile.” - Viggo Mortensen
