1st ed.
What spot on Earth have thousands of adventurers tried to reach, but has been seen by only 660 people? In what body of water is it almost impossible to sink -- or swim? Where is the climate so dry that young children have never seen rain? This exciting series gives kids an opportunity to learn about the tallest, the deepest, the hottest, the coldest, and the most dangerous places on Earth. A great introduction to Earth Science, this series looks at some of nature's most famous and amazing record breakers!

The Sahara is almost as large as the United States. Daytime temperatures may soar to more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit and, hours later, plunge to below freezing at night. Few could survive more than four hours there without water. Yet, this hostile environment is home to 2.5 million people.
