In this book, we take young explorers on an expedition to some of the most fascinating of the natural wonders that are found all over our planet. We travel down into bizarre stalactite caves and up to dizzying mountain peaks, to places where volcanoes spew lava and geysers hot water. From the expanses of the Sahara Desert to the incredible diversity of the rainforest to the icy landscape of the Antarctic, the pages of this title not only present the awe-inspiring natural spectacles, they also explain how these phenomena come about, and the plants, animals and even people who live nearby.
