Overview

The North American continent stretches over 9.5 million square miles, and is home to more than 500 million people, who share it with hundreds of thousands of species of mammals, birds, insects, and plants—many of them extraordinary, unforgettable, and unique. With 150,000 miles of coastline, North America also has the longest and most abundant shores of any continent on Earth.


In the stunning seven-part series from Discovery Channel, renowned nature producer Huw Cordey travels from the Arctic to the Tropics, revealing the wonders of the most dynamic continent on Earth—from the stunning glow of the Aura Borealis in Alaska to the thousands of tornadoes that batter the Great Plains each year to the 55-ton crystals in Mexico’s Crystal Cave.


North America, the companion book to the television series, follows the producers as they tell the story of this rich and eclectic land through more than 250 gorgeous full-color photographs and engaging essays. Chock-full of interesting facts about the various ecology and wildlife of the many regions of the continent— Prairies, Coasts, Mountains, Freshwater, Deserts, and Forests— North America exposes the continent as you’ve never seen it before.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This companion book to the eight-part Discovery Channel series that began airing last month reintroduces readers to a continent that few of its 500+ inhabitants have truly mastered. North America: A World in One Continent lives up to its subtitle claim with more than 200 photographs and a plenitude of detailed information about the most dynamic continent on earth. To gather the images, the Discovery crew spent 2,830 days in the field, with 51 cameramen and women on 250 shoots in 10 countries, 29 U.S. states and 8 Canadian provinces. Definitely a "browse it, buy it" hardcover.

From the Publisher

Tucson Citizen
“Through words and photographs, this book tells of the continent’s birth millions of years ago, as well as highlighting the very heart of North America. It is an absolute treasure.”

    Story of One Alone - Prologue

    As the little human boy strolled down the street on his board, he gazed at the blazing remains of his home. He saw his familys corpses, friends ashes, everyone he knew, dead.
