Introduction to Earth Science Series


The mosaic formed by Earth's many terrains and geographic treasures reflects the incredible journey the planet has taken in the thousands of years since it was formed. Fashioned from the natural forces and climatic conditions the Earth is subject to, the planet's biomes, from its oceans to its deserts and rain forests, have nurtured a wide range of diverse plant and animal life. Loaded with stunning color images, these volumes provide a panoramic view of the planet's extraordinary physical history and ecology, as well as the geologic and meteorological phenomena that have shaped itÑand continue to do so today.

“In this beautiful nonfiction series almost every page has a photographic border that is eye-catching; the text is clean and the page has sufficient white space to encourage reluctant students. ... With tight school budgets, and easy Internet access, it takes a very special book to be worthy of the cost investment; this series would make my short list.” —LMC, May/June 2012
