Description
Delving into a seemingly dry and barren ecosystem, this book closely examines the desert landscape and reveals how many exciting discoveries it holds. It explores native plants and animals and depicts the extreme temperatures, rough terrain, and vast distances of the desert in detail, and describes lost civilizations as well as today's desert-dwelling cultures. Science and history activities range from creating mirages and fashioning an Anasazi clay bowl to growing salt crystals and creating a cactus dish terrarium. Written in an informal, entertaining style, this book for readers 8 and up is illustrated with drawings and cartoons throughout and includes vocabulary words, sidebars, and fascinating facts.
