December 2019 Book of the Month
Handsomely illustrated this information book is full of stories of adventure and exploration and takes readers to some of the wildest, most distant places on the planet, from the polar regions to the deepest underground caves. Each location is brought to life through maps and the geographical vital statistics but most vividly through the stories of the men and women who were among the first to explore them. Expect to get up close to the Matterhorn, the Arabian Desert and both poles while learning too about the threats to these beautiful places from climate change. Tyler’s striking graphic illustrations make the information even more memorable and there’s a useful glossary too.
Learn about the highest and deepest, hottest and coldest places on Earth - travel to the extremes of our environment. Discover the world's most wild terrain - deserts, mountains, volcanoes, rivers, jungles, oceans, the polar regions and more - as well as the animals that live there and the people who have explored them. Find out how these regions are under threat from global warming and other issues, and learn what we can do to conserve them. Bursting with information and illustrated in bold and colourful graphics, this book will grab the attention of all avid explorers - big and small.
