Ocotillo, as if a hybrid between a cactus and a scrub bush, grow in the American Southwest and northern deserts of Mexico. They bloom in the spring; wide stretches of Texas's Big Bend National Park glow with a low-hanging ethereal red-orange in April. On the rare occasions when rain descends upon the deserts, the ocotillo respond by sprouting tight green leaves, some of which eventually become thorns. An ocotillo's beauty, veracity, and efficiency emerge from a challenging environment. These attributes help describe the mission of Blue Ocotillo Publishing. While there is no such thing as a blue ocotillo - blue is the color of hope. Our books aim to offer hope and insight for a world greatly in need of fresh perspectives to serve the common good.
