A mobile home is a home that can be moved from place to place. This fascinating new book looks at such unique homes as tents, igloos, and yurts, used by hunters and nomadic peoples, as well as trailers, houseboats, and recreational vehicles. Detailed photography shows what these kinds of homes are made from and what they look like inside. Other interesting topics include going to work and school when you are on the move and how people living in mobile homes are affected by extreme temperatures and natural phenomena such as hurricanes. A world map identifies the cities and countries featured in the book.
