Summary Graphic illustrator Simon Tyler explores the extremes of our planet- and the people who venture there- in his bold and colourful style. Following on from the magnificent Adventures in Space, comes a compendium on a topic closer to home- our planet, the Earth. Learn about the highest and deepest, hottest and coldest places on Earth- travel to the extremes of our environment. Discover the world's most wild terrain- deserts, mountains, volcanoes, rivers, jungles, oceans, the polar regions and more- as well as the animals that live there and the people who have explored them. Find out how these regions are under threat from global warming and other issues, and learn what we can do to conserve them. Bursting with information and illustrated in bold and colourful graphics, this book will grab the attention of all avid explorers- big and small.
