American Desert Magazine is the realization of the long standing widely based desire to explore and experience some of the most beautiful regions in the United States – The American Desert.
The American Desert is comprised of North America’s four major deserts: The Great Basin Desert – the largest desert in North America - located primarily in Nevada; The Mojave Desert – the hottest desert in North America, located primarily in south-eastern California; The Chihuahuan Desert – the second largest desert in North America, located in the southwest US and northern Mexico and The Sonoran Desert – a desert located in the southwest US and northwest Mexico.
For centuries these regions, which receive less than 10 inches of annual precipitation, have been home to human life, from ancient hunters and farmers, to Native Americans and finally to today’s inhabitants who enjoy its warm, dry climate and stunning vistas.
Each week, American Desert Magazine, a fast paced half-hour television series and its companion web site – www.amerciandesertmagazine.com experience up-close and personal tours of these great natural destinations and the attractions they possess – both natural and manmade - with an emphasis on their historical significance, current day characteristics and influence on our nation.
