reverse an axis

Is it possible to reverse an axis.  I am doing some work with 
ListContourPlot
and I would like for my x-axis to display from say 14 to -5 (from 
left
to right across the screen), while the y-axis goes from say 2 to 9.
I have tried calculating my data matrix "backwards" in the x-
direction,
and using MeshRange->{{14,-5},{2,9}}; this does not work (the data is 
now
"backwards" but the x-axis still displays from -5 to 14).
I have consulted Wolfram's book, Tom Wickham-Jones' book on 
Mathematica
Graphics, and Backman & Smith's book on a Guide to Mathematica 
Graphics
without success.
Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for your help.
John C. Erb
