Discover the harsh world of hot and cold deserts and the peoples, plants and animals that live in them.
Here is an original and exciting new guide to some of the most inhospitable places on Earth. Superb, full-color photographs of the people who live in the desert, and the creatures and plants that survive the extremes of temperature, offer a unique "eyewitness" view of this hostile environment. See the stunning sand dunes of the Namib Desert, a Bedouin in full wedding dress, the desert in bloom, a jewel wasp and a camel's regalia. Learn how sand dunes form, how a few honeypot ants store food for a whole nest in their own bodies, how a mummy is preserved in sand and how bedouin women weave a whole tent from goat's hair.
