Synopsis

Deserts by Nicola Davies

Come explore the world's deserts, from the scorching North American southwest to the cold Gobi. Starting with natural forces such as wind and rain and moving through plant and animal life, as well as all the ways humans live and work with the desert, this is an accessible introduction to this fascinating environment. With included hands-on activities and key vocabulary defined in the glossary, this is a clear, easy-to-understand introduction to an important environmental topic.
