New Books


The Arizona Daily Star lets us know about a new book with holy-moley-fabulous pictures.

It’s David Yetman’s new book,

“The Great Cacti: Ethnobotany and Biogeography,” is a treasure trove of photos taken by Yetman of exotic, often hard-to-find specimens in Central and South America.

I’m going to be “borrowing” a few photos from the Daily Star, which republished them from the book, over the next few days.

“It’s actually a relative of the saguaro. These grow so densely you literally can’t walk through them. They are somewhat parallel to the saguaro in importance to the local people. . . . They make a salsa from the fruit which is very good, very different.”
