There are corners of Earth where the conditions are so harsh it's hard to believe any life can be sustained there. This new series takes readers to smoldering deserts, towering mountains, frigid polar caps, the vastness of space, and the depths of the ocean, and introduces them to the people, plants, and animals that call these extreme environments home. Photos, maps, and exciting text transport readers to different extreme locations and show how living things are able to thrive against all odds.
