About this piece:
This carousel book was created after spending time in the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in Southern New Mexico last fall. In one day we saw deer, Sandhill Cranes, Snow Geese and javelina. I wanted to make a book to remember the day and the wonders of this unique place.
