The beauty of deserts is known to many kids only through movies and TV. But the awesome look of deserts is just part of their story. Deserts are vast ecosystems representing triumphs of animal and plant survival: hummingbirds and elf owls, scarab beetles and barbary sheep, the piglike javalina, and the many cactuses that preserve themselves by acting as fine-tuned moisture-catching systems. This learning sourcebook gives kids everywhere an activities-oriented, scientific approach to studying the earth's deserts. It also takes them on a discovery sidetrip into the intriguing human communities that have survived desert environments for centuries.
