The Lindsays

Diana and Lowell Lindsay created Sunbelt Books based on their passion for the natural world. Diana Lindsay’s love for the desert began in 1966, when she “figuratively went into the desert and never came out” [2].The Anza-Borrego Desert was the subject for her master’s thesis from SDSU that was subsequently published as a book entitled “Our Historic Desert” by Copley Books (1973). She is a noted desert scholar and author [3] .

Lowell Lindsay is the CEO of Sunbelt Publications. He majored in geology at UCLA and received his master’s degree from West Texas A&M University in political science, specializing in environmental education. He is past president of the San Diego Association of Geologists (SDAG) and a board member of the national Association of Earth Science Editor (AESE) [4] . Lowell is a former naval aviator and wilderness training officer.
