Publisher Comments:

Since its original publication in 1999, Yann Arthus-Bertrandand#8217;s Earth From Above has been a touchstone for the environmental movement throughout the world, selling more than 3 million copies in all languages. The result of a five-year journey across five continents and 60 countries, this spectacular portrait of our planet is also an iconic reminder of its fragility.

and#160;

In this anniversary edition, Arthus-Bertrand and one dozen experts on current environmental issues look back upon the past decadeand#8217;s progress. With more than 100 striking new images and nine new essays, including frank discussions of climate change and the growing energy crisis throughout the world, Arthus-Bertrand poignantly juxtaposes Earthand#8217;s raw beauty with the evidence of humanityand#8217;s negative impact upon our home.

Synopsis:

The result of a five-year journey across five continents and 60 countries, this spectacular portrait of the planet is also an iconic reminder of its fragility. In this anniversary edition, Arthus-Bertrand and one dozen experts on current environmental issues look back upon the past decade's progress.

Synopsis:

Celebrated exploration photographer George Steinmetz takes his art to a new level in Desert Air, the first comprehensive photographic collection of the worldand#8217;s and#8220;extreme deserts,and#8221; which receive less than four inches of precipitation per year. Steinmetz has spent 15 years on this epic body of work, capturing remarkable and surreally beautiful visions of deserts, from Chinaand#8217;s great Gobi Desert to the Sahara in northern Africa to Death Valley in California. Much more than a visual journey, these images are enriched by the exciting stories behind Steinmetzand#8217;s adventures in some of the worldand#8217;s most difficult and challenging areasand#8212;from smuggling his paraglider into Libya to getting arrested for spying in Iran, to crashing into a tree in western China. Desert Air reveals extraordinary desert ecosystems that together form a kind of disparate family of coevolved landscapes; similar, yet each unique in its own way.

this book is completely amazing. I look at it every single time I visit Powell's. I also have used it multiple times in school papers, and as gifts for friends.
