Living in a Desert by Ellen Labrecque

This book takes a simple look at what it means to live in a desert. It examines basic geographical features, why people choose to live there and dangers people might have because of living in a desert, such as extreme weather conditions. The book also looks at how people adapt to living in deserts and the different things both adults and children do in their daily lives, from desert-specific jobs to home schooling, respectively.
