COLORADO DESERT WILDFLOWERS by Jon Mark Stewart (Jon Mark Stewart Photography, 73-430 Indian Creek Way, Palm Desert, Calif. 92260: $12.95, plus $4 tax and shipping; illustrated, paperback original). The Colorado Desert encompasses much of southeastern California, parts of Arizona, the Baja peninsula and sections of northern Mexico. Its ordinarily bleak landscape produces a lovely array of wildflowers, most of which appear after the annual rainy season. The striking photographs in this handsome guide are arranged by the color of the flowers, rather than their botanical classifications, a sensible arrangement that makes it easy for hikers and amateur scientists to use.
