Item description for Horned Toad Canyon by Joyce Gibson Roach & Charles Shaw...
Not many reptiles are considered cute, but the charming horned toad is irresistible and can be visited inits neighborhood on the arid, wide-open spaces of the Southwest prairie. The toad'sstory is richly integrated with the culture, language, biology and natural history of their desert landscape and includes many facts mixed with delightful personification of each animal, from the brave horned lizard, Tuck, to the awkward Harris Hawk. The glossary of natural history terms, an appendix of Southwestern lore, and a map detailing habitats all enlarge on the text.
