Несмотря на то, что само название «пустыня» происходит от таких слов, как «пусто», «пустота», этот удивительный природный объект наполнен разнообразной жизнью. Пустыня очень многолика: помимо песчаных барханов, которые привычно рисует наш взор, существуют солончаковые, каменистые, глинистые, а также снежные пустыни Антарктиды и Арктики. С учетом снежных пустынь этой природной зоне принадлежит одна пятая часть всей поверхности Земли! Этот том детской энциклопедии из серии «Eye ask yourself» рассказывает об удивительном мире пустынь, о людях, которые там живут и о многочисленных представителях животного и растительного мира, которые смогли приспособиться к этим непростым условиям обитания. Книга иллюстрирована великолепными фотографиями, сделанными лучшими фотографами мира.
