Desert Bighorn Sheep: Wilderness Icon is the most comprehensive photographic
work on this elusive symbol of the deserts of the southwest United States
and northern Mexico. Photographer Jeff Young worked for years to assemble
tens of thousands of high quality photographs and assemble them into what is
the finest collection of desert bighorn photos ever published. Author Mark
Jorgensen brings his five decades of experience studying desert bighorn
sheep and managing their habitat to provide the informative text of this
The book’s six chapters features some 200 high quality
photographs featuring rare behavior, sheep in their rugged desert habitat,
ewes nurturing newborn lambs, and massive rams in stunning ritualized combat
for dominance. The text documents the struggle to provide habitat for the
desert bighorn from Nuevo Leon west to Baja California, Mexico, and from
Texas west to California. Today, well-regulated hunting programs in the
United States and Mexico have generated millions of dollars in revenue,
which has been directed to bighorn management and conservation programs.
