The Desert Is My Mother/El desierto es mi madre is a beautiful poetic and artistic rendition of the relationship between nature and Hispanics and Native American peoples. Rather than being an expanse empty of life and value, the desert is lovingly presented as the provider of comfort, food, spirit and life. The book, the first picture book published by Arte Público Press’ Piñata Books, introduces the partnership of an award-winning poet and a prize-winning painter.
