Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 11: People of the Desert Fewer people live in deserts than in other parts of the world. Certain peoples, however, have adapted well to desert life. Nomads travel the desert, moving from one oasis to another. They use camels and donkeys to carry their tents and possessions. The San people of the Kalahari Desert and the Aborigines of Australia are hunter-gatherers. They eat plants and roots gathered by the women, and small animals hunted by the men.

Review:

Great series! Can't say enough good things about any books from Crabtree Publishing. Neil Morris' "Wonders of Our World" series from Crabtree Publishing breaks down environment into specific subjects so that appropriate focus can be given in each educational book. These books will prove much more memorable than competitors on the same subject because they blend simplicity with an effort to entertain: kids will find them bright, colorful, and appealing beyond the usual school applications -- The Midwest Book Review
