Reviews for Soul of the Desert

Arid zones make up 70% of Australia's landmass, yet many of us are unaware of the amazing plants and animals that populate these areas. This book takes us on a journey through the deserts of Australia, with beautiful paintings of the plants and animals on almost every page. Perfect for anyone interested in natural history or botanical art. Dave

Nikulinsky's biological illustrations . . . bring the beauty of Australia's desert flora and wildlife to vibrant detail. -- SciTech Book News You never know what Philippa is going to bring back from her trips because few other botanical artists venture far from the car. -- Sunday Times For readers who forget how much of this continent is, in fact, 'arid area' . . . this book is a discovery. -- Bulletin
