A Desert Pilgrim's Bestiary


In the legendary tradition of the medieval bestiary, "A Desert Pilgrim’s Bestiary" is a compendium of animals that slither, fly, run, and dwell in the Southwest desert. Within these pages, you will discover strange and elusive beasts in the mountains, rivers, and deserts of the Southwest. Join us in the dwelling place of secretive and fantastic Gila monsters that can deliver devastatingly venomous bites, where sluggish desert tortoises munch on needle-barbed prickly pears. If you love the feel of a desert breeze in the shade, or the sublime quiet of a hillside of saguaro, and the animals with whom we share the land, you’ll love "A Desert Pilgrim's Bestiary."

This book was a collaboration between Anthony Walent of Communicating Vessels and Eberhardt Press. Those who know Anthony's work will find this to be a very special book, the culmination of years of writing and many long walks in the desert. We printed 500 copies of this first edition, and ran through most of the press run in about a month. We're not sure when we'll be able to do a reprint, but we have 50 copies in stock.
