I am trying to figure out what region I live in. I live in Lancaster, CA, which is high desert, the Angelope Valley, zip code 93536. I am also interested in planting a hardy shade tree in my east facing yard and want to know if a Japanese Maple would survive. Thanks!

You are in USDA zone 8 or Sunset's zone 13. A maple won't be happy in your desert environment, but lots of other trees will. You can find lots of other plant suggestions by visiting a website sponsored by Antelope Valley Conservation District:
