About Letters From the Desert

This is an email newsletter written by Chris Clarke. Who is me. I live in Joshua Tree, California with my ecologist-idealist wife Lara and our dog, Heart.

I have written for a large number of different venues including KCET TV in Los Angeles, where I was environment editor, Earth Island Journal (which I edited from 1999-2007), and my now-offline blog Creek Running North/Coyote Crossing. I also put in a few years as a nationally syndicated gardening columnist for the Knight-Ridder chain.

I work these days to protect wild places in the California desert. I may use this newsletter on occasion to proselytize for the desert having intrinsic value independent of what it can do for people, or to ask you to call your legislators to defend that value. You have been notified.

I cannot respond to every single email, but I do read them all and enjoy most of them.
