NPSNM member Bill Dunmire has released his new book New Mexico’s Living Landscapes.
New Mexico is third among states of greatest natural diversity, exceeded only by Texas and California. More than nine-tenths of New Mexico’s land remains in native or near-native condition, unchanged by human hands. This “living landscape” is wonderfully varied, ranging from vast rose-colored deserts that contrast with expanses of native grasslands, endless mesas and escarpments, fresh black lava flows, river valleys and rugged mountains. New Mexico’s Living Landscapes is a guide through the ecoregions and down the State and National Scenic Byways of the state’s natural world — from grasslands to mountains to deserts, focusing on the most interesting landscape features and the plants and wildlife found therein.
