Tonight, we’ll read about desert oases from a book written by H. J. Llewellyn Beadnell and published in 1909.

In ecology, an oasis is a fertile area of a desert that sustains plant life and provides habitat for animals. Surface water may be present, or water may only be accessible from wells or underground channels created by humans.
