"This 224 page coffee-table book is written for a wide readership and can be appreciated by schoolchildren as well as academics. Liberally illustrated with excellent colour photographs, the Living Deserts details the adaptations of the plants and animals which occur in the four deserts of southern Africa (Nama Karoo, Succulent Karoo, Kalahari and Namib). Barry Lovegrove has accessed data from scientific books and journals and has condensed the material in a readable, raconteurish style.

There are nine chapters entitled; The deserts of southern Africa; Water: the currency of life; In the heat of the day; The struggle for food; The armoury of desert conflicts; Social contracts; Time out; Go forth and multiply; The future of the deserts."
