Contrary to conventional wisdom, the desert isn't defined by high temperatures, but rather by the lack of moisture. This compelling book provides all the facts on what deserts are, where they are located, and how their inhabitants survive the extremes. Using charts of desert regions around the world and wonderful full-color photos, this book identifies plant life such as the saguaro cactus and the Joshua tree; animal life such as camels and lemmings; and the indigenous peoples who live in the desert, such as the Arab Bedouin and the Aborigines of Australia.
