Description

A richly illustrated and comprehensive survey of the world's great desert regions.

This compact reference begins by defining deserts and the climatic conditions that bring about their existence. With spectacular photographs, the authors examine the various desert landscapes and the effects that wind and water have upon these ever-changing environments. Other features include:

An examination of the natural diversity and amazing adaptations of desert flora and fauna An in-depth study of desert mineral and agricultural resources A survey of desert peoples: their customs, their religions, the ecological and social issues they face, and their continued survival in these harsh climates Guidance on desert locations to visit for their important archaeological, cultural and historical features.

Guide to Deserts also includes a 150-page atlas section mapping the world's deserts region by region and charting area, resources and threats -- both natural and those caused by human beings. At home, at the office, in school or for travelers on the go, this portable guide is an ideal resource.
