Oasis of Stone: Visions of Baja California Sur

This gorgeous new coffee table book-- gorgeous through and through-- has text by Bruce Berger (author of Almost an Island) and photographs by Miguel Angel de la Cueva, who both live and work in La Paz. It is co-published by Sunbelt Publications and Planeta Peninsula, an environmental group based in La Paz. This is not just another coffee table book-- it is a deeply thoughtful and powerful work by two artists who know Baja California intimately.

(Apropos of Baja California, my own book, Miraculous Air, is about to come out in a paperback edition with Milkweed this spring. And: thanks to Baja Books & Maps, I'll be reading with Bruce Berger next month in San Jose del Cabo.)
