Is is possible, Roberto, that by "Owee Desert" you refer to 
Pinkston's OWYHEE DESERT?

The name "Owyhee," by the way, is an early variant spelling 
for "HAWAII," and is used in geographical nomenclature for a large 
county in southwestern Idaho, for a desert area in that region (for 
which Ms. Pinkston has named this cv) and for various communities and 
features of the area.  The name was given by early explorers because 
of a curious resemblance to some areas in the Hawaiian Islands.

Neil Mogensen,  zone 6b/7a near Asheville, NC, but once from an area 
where the Owyhee country constituted more than a third of the view.
