Desert Oracle


The Desert Oracle is a pocket-sized field guide to the fascinating American deserts: strange tales, singing sand dunes, sagebrush trails, artists and authors and oddballs, ghost towns and modern legends, musicians and mystics, scorpions and saguaros.

Published quarterly from its base in beautiful Joshua Tree, California, and distributed widely across the American Southwest, the Desert Oracle is your companion at a roadside diner, around a campfire, or in your tent or cabin as the wind and the coyotes howl outside at night.

Subscribe today and receive each quarterly issue for only $15 per year or receive eight issues (two years) for $25. Pick up the current issue at your favorite desert spots, including BKB Ceramics and Coyote Corner in Joshua Tree, The Palms Restaurant & Bar in Wonder Valley, Sagebrush Press Books and Highway 62 Vintage Marketplace in Yucca Valley, Roy's in Amboy, and the 29 Palms Inn at the Oasis of Mara.

The Desert Oracle is your new favorite guide book. It's amazing. Rick Paulas, KCET The new quarterly is inspired by old desert guides from the 60's and 70's, but pays homage to the weirdness of the desert with stories about its strange animals and even stranger characters.
