Description
Illustrated with hundreds of remarkable color photographs—a sockeye salmon is caught mid-leap into a grizzly's mouth; a supercell storm spins into a tornado over Nebraska; a small white beluga whale blows a "smoke ring" of bubbles just for fun—this book is a portrait of earth and its inhabitants. Following the ancient Greek division of the world into spheres, the book explores the atmosphere, the pedosphere (land), the biosphere (life), the hydrosphere (water), the cryosphere (frozen regions), and the geosphere (subterranean earth), with entertaining sidebars of trivia, definitions, scientific debates, history, locations and Top Ten lists.
