Deserts, among the least appreciated and understood areas on earth, are often mistaken for barren and lifeless places. This book dispels that myth and introduces young readers to these fascinating and dynamic regions of our planet. Drawing on Britannica's thoroughly vetted resources and utilizing vivid photographs, handy vocabulary, and informative sidebars, this book answers that very question, providing students with a great primer on a landscape and environment that covers about one-third of the land surface of our planet.
