circumstances. This book will teach you how to deal with dry weather,
high winds, intense sunlight, cold nights, insect pests, and other
challenges of gardening in the southwest mountains. Includes beautiful
as well as a planting timetable, glossary of lesser known food crops,

"If every region in North America had a handbook
like this, we would be seven leagues ahead
of where we now are in Permaculture education.
The author and publishers are to be commended
for creating a first-class resource."
