Extreme Earth: Wildlife, Wild Places, Wild Weather

Author(s): Robert Coenraads

Non-Fiction

This remarkable book challenges and expands our understanding of our beautiful and mysterious planet. Would you believe that it snows in the Sahara Desert; that the 2011 Japanese earthquake was so powerful that it slowed Earth's rotation; that Niagara Falls can freeze over; that the kangaroo rat can live its entire life without drinking a drop of water? Extreme Earth isn't just a list of the usual records about Earth - the highest, the longest, the hottest - it is also a powerful tool to understanding our ever-changing planet and discovering the ingenious ways in which plants and animals have evolved over time to survive. You'll marvel at the stunning images and the stories behind them.
