Open the gates of this frankly beautiful guide to five of Earth's most extraordinary habitats, each filled with incredible creatures and epic scenery. Explorers ages 9 to 12 can trek through the Amazon Rainforest, travel to the Chihuahuan Desert, dive in the Great Barrier Reef, delve deep into the Black Forest, and stand on the roof of the world—the Himalayan Mountains—to see nature at its wildest. The text offers both an overview of these regions and an introduction to their characteristic animals, while Kristjana Williams's marvelously detailed, engraved illustrations give the book a certain antique flair.
