Despite the harshness of their environment, deserts produce some of the most spectacular scenery on earth. Within those hostile terrains are found many of the world's most amazing and ingenious methods and mechanisms for survival - whether plant or animal. Jim Flegg's informative text is accompanied by a wealth of colour photographs from arid regions around the world.
