Growing Food in a Hotter Drier Land

A look at desert farming traditions all around the world



Gary Paul Nabhan is one of the world's experts on the agricultural traditions of arid lands. For this book he has visited indigenous and traditional farmers in the Gobi Desert, the Arabian Peninsula, the Sahara Desert, and Andalusia, as well as the Sonoran, Chihuahuan, and Painted deserts of North America, to learn firsthand their techniques and designs aimed at reducing heat and drought stress on orchards, fields, and dooryard gardens.

From the Gobi to the Sahara, this book draws upon the wisdom and technical knowledge from desert farming traditions all around the world to offer time-tried strategies for managing lessening water supplies in a warmer world.
