a land of desert and drought - Baja in 1911


An article written for National Geographic by Edward William Nelson, a noted naturalist and ethnologist. It's a bit longish, but cool to read his observations of Baja in 1911. I'll post the whole article as I get time. Some great photos. His book, Lower California and Its Natural Resources, is also a gem.

I'd be interested in the article by Roy Chapman Andrews. As a kid, I read his dinosaur book over and over again every week. Some people say he was the real inspiration for the Indiana Jones character.

Sadly, I only have the Baja portion of the magazine. But I bet your local librarian could help you. Mine has been amazing at finding resources for me.

Elephant tree. also known as "Torote", is know as a medicinal vegetation for respiratory issues. Cut off the green leaves and make a tea out of it. I was told about this from a Baja native years ago. Did some research and tried it, seems to work well. Thank you Gueribo, very interesting..
