About this book

Language: German

Earth is a desert planet. Almost half of the land surface is occupied by hot and cold deserts. Unique landscapes and stunning adaptations of plants, animals and people are a source of great fascination for these extreme zones. For five years Michael Martin traveled the world, to explore the landscapes and habitats of the deserts and polar regions of our planet. In 40 trips and expeditions he crossed ice and dry deserts – by motorcycle, by dogsled, on camels, by helicopter or on skis. He experienced heat and drought, bitter cold and months of darkness. This visually stunning book takes a cutting-edge global view of the phenomenon of deserts and is dedicated to a comparison of hot and cold deserts – unique and fantastic!

The 2017 version includes a DVD with 150 minutes of film material from the series Planet Wüste, featuring a commentary by the author.

Summary in German:
Die Erde ist ein Wüstenplanet. Nahezu die Hälfte der Landoberfläche wird von heißen und kalten Wüsten eingenommen. Einzigartige Landschaften und verblüffende Anpassungsleistungen von Pflanzen, Tieren und Menschen machen die große Faszination dieser Extremzonen aus. Fünf Jahre war Michael Martin weltweit unterwegs, um die Landschaften und Lebensräume der Wüsten und Polarregionen unserer Erde zu erkunden. Auf 40 Reisen und Expeditionen durchquerte er für dieses Projekt Eis- und Trockenwüsten – mit dem Motorrad, mit Hundeschlitten, auf Kamelen, mit dem Helikopter oder auf Skiern. Er erlebte Hitze und Trockenheit, klirrende Kälte und monatelange Dunkelheit. Dieses bildgewaltige Buch wirft einen topaktuellen globalen Blick auf das Phänomen Wüste und widmet sich einem umfassenden Vergleich heißer und kalter Wüsten – einzigartig und fantastisch!

Die Jubiläumsausgabe beinhaltet die DVD mit 150 Minuten Filmmaterial aus der Serie Planet Wüste. Weltweit gefilmt und kommentiert von Michael Martin.
