Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the icy wastes of the polar regions and the remarkable plants and animals that survive in such hostile conditions. Here is an exciting and informative guide to the vast, icy wastes at the ends of the earth. Superb color photographs of snowy mountains and frozen seas, rare animals and plants, and the teeming life on and under the ice offer a unique "eyewitness" view of our planet's polar wilderness. See a seal with a "trunk", a bear in a burrow, icebergs bigger than skyscrapers, 200-year-old snow goggles, and a pony's snowshoe. Learn about the northern and southern lights, the crushing power of ice, why Amundsen beat Scott to the South Pole, how penguins keep warm, and what reindeer eat. Discover why layers of clothing retain body heat, which birds are known as "pirates of the air", which mammals live farthest north, how long a walrus feeds on its mother's milk, whether lemmings commit mass suicide or not, and much, much more!

Synopsis:

Readers can enter the faraway world of the Earth's frozen poles and learn about amazing human and animal life that thrives at subzero temperatures--from a 4,000-year-old Eskimo tribe to king penguins, who dive deep into frigid seas filled with icebergs the size of Massachusetts. Full-color illustrations.
