About this book

This is a beautiful book transporting you to the highest, hottest, coldest, most dramatic and most remote places on earth. Discover the icy expanse of the Baltoro Glacier in Pakistan, the bizarre and exotic wildlife of Madagascar, the searing heat of the Australian Outback and the power of the Iguassu Falls in South America. Learn why it is 30 degrees hotter at the base of the Grand Canyon than at the top, why it has been so many years since the Atacama Desert in northern Chile last saw rain, and the reasons that make the town of Oymyakon in Yakutia in Siberia the coldest permanently inhabited town on Earth.
