Synopsis

Extreme Planet Carsten Peter's Adventures in Volcanoes, Caves, Canyons, Deserts, and Beyond! by Carsten Peter

The earth explodes in shoots of hot magma, glaciers crash into the ocean, grotesque creatures lurk in deep caves... follow noted National Geographic explorer and photographer Carsten Peter as he shows us that our precious planet Earth is one wild and extreme place! Tornadoes, ice caves, glaciers, lightning-no territory or phenomenon is too scary for daring explorer Carsten Peter, who is right at home exploring the most outrageous places and raucous natural occurrences around the globe. Kids can follow along as he heads into extreme places and reveals the science and background behind these seemingly unexplainable natural places and phenomenon. Underlying each of his adventures is a dose of hard science, intriguing history, provocative images, tips, gear and gadget advice, and more to help kids learn about the Earth how they can help preserve the planet.

Reviews
