The Sonoran Desert: A Literary Field Guide

Announcing a new collection from the University of Arizona Press, The Sonoran Desert: A Literary Field Guide! Each contributing poet wrote about a species of flora or fauna in Tucson’s Saguaro National Park. My poem is about the pinacate beetle, or stink bug. All poems are illustrated with some scientific facts about the species. My beetle is also illustrated in miniature on title page—go, stinky!
