Desert Dreams Coloring Book
See the Illustrations
This coloring book features Sonoran Desert plants and animals seen in our award-winning film DESERT DREAMS. For printing, we chose soy-based inks and a printing company that runs on 100% renewable energy (Arizona Lithographers in Tucson). We have tested the ink to make certain it won’t smear when the pages are colored with solvent-based pens.

And for those who prefer to color realistically, we have compiled photographs that were used in the creation of the illustrations. Click Here to view the photographs with the names and natural history notes for the animals featured in each drawing.

These 7th Century flutes of Puebloan ancestry were discovered in 1931 by Earl Morris in caves of northeastern Arizona, the earliest known in the American Southwest.
