School Library Journal
These books provide cursory introductions to four extreme habitats. The author has selected examples that reflect the wide range of climates, locations, and inhabitants. Deserts , for example, includes people from Africa, Australia, China, and the United States. The final chapter of each book covers some of the problems (desertification, pollution, global warming) that result when people live in these fragile environments. Steps that have been taken to resolve the environmental problems are included. These books may be of use in large collections or where there is a need in the curriculum. A map locates the landform or environment around the world and half-page captioned photos appear on most pages.
