Overview

The earth is in a constant state of change. This fascinating new series investigates the forces at work on our planet, shaping its future.

Each book is written in a simple, easy to understand style, forming a lively and visually exciting introduction to the world around us. Full-color artwork and photographs combine to present the graphic story behind various natural wonders, showing examples from all over the world.

First the important principles are introduced, answering basic questions such as: What is a volcano? Where are they located in the world? What different kinds are there?

Dramatic full-color photos show fascinating and world-shattering events. Each book ends with a look at what future might hold.

Few natural wonders are as inspiring as mountains. Mountains shows young readers the great ranges of the world, how mountains are made, and the way life has adapted to their high altitudes. Of particular interest will be a chapter on the thrilling exploits of the mountaineers who have conquered Mount Everest. Spectacular full-color photos capture mountains in all their majestic glory.
