About this title

Synopsis:

Death Valley in the American Southwest isn't a destination for those who don't enjoy the heat! Its scary name was given to it by a group of gold seekers who barely made it out of the valley alive. In fact, a few in their group weren't as lucky. Readers of this book will find out more about the unique landscape of this national park and about the animals and plants that have the vital adaptations needed to live there. Incredible photographs reflect why so many visitors make the trip to California and Nevada to experience Death Valley for themselves.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-Readers who want to go for the gusto will find all they can handle in Transylvania's account of Vlad Dracul's bloody career (which is capped by a rousingly gruesome old image of skewered and decapitated corpses), but overall this series has more to offer armchair travelers than thrill-seekers. The tour of the 400-mile Bigfoot Trail, for instance, pauses at each natural area or preserve through which it goes to highlight distinctive flora and tangible hazards like bears and wolverines. Similarly, Death Valley, Mount Terror, and The Dead Sea offer glimpses of wildlife and history with only occasional mention of ghosts or dangerous terrain. Each volume includes at least one map along with a suite of color photographs depicting vistas, animals, prominent geological features and, for Transylvania, picturesque old castles. Most also feature a page of summary facts, and all conclude with an assurance that each locale is well worth a (cautious, well-prepared) visit. A mild alternative to Bearport's ongoing "Scary Places" series.α(c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
