From Library Journal:
California has always loomed large in the national imagination as a symbol of the unlimited possibilities of the American experience. The dream and the reality of the Golden State are explored in these three works. Full of geography, geology, and natural and cultural history, Desert Heart is the most scientific of the three. The Sonoran Desert takes in large portions of western Arizona, northwestern Mexico, and Baja as well as southern California. Based on 25 years of exploration, astronomer/painter Hartmann spins a history of events and colorful characters in this harsh region. The photos and maps enhance the detailed narrative rather than stealing the show. The 122 color photographs in California are a feast of the familiar--poppy fields, crashing surf, cable cars, lofty redwoods, Yosemite Valley, and twisted bristlecone pines. This coffee-table elegy is big, glossy, and self-assured. Jones's photos gorgeously reveal the Golden State's rich diversity. O California! is an exhibition catalog without an exhibition. Organized by geographic location, its 109 landscapes range from the earliest artists to the 1930s. The visual material is matched with literary passages from writers, artists, naturalists, settlers, and Native Americans. The book is both celebration and lamentation, celebrating the land and vision while lamenting its staggering changes over the last 150 years.
