The Kalahari desert expands for over 900,000 square kilmetres and is one of the places that symbolize "the end of the earth" in this series. These places are remote and often difficult to reach, and they also represent a disappearing wilderness. Each title shows the unique qualities of the region. Topics include the ancient and prehistoric shaping of the place, its human culture, the wildlife, the changes wrought through invasion from outside communities, and what the future holds for the region.

Grade 5-8. In these well-illustrated titles, readers get a chance to see some of the most remote areas of the world. Each book contains over 60 captioned, full-color photographs, reproductions, geological timelines, and maps. Double-page topic treatments address the formation and history of the land, its wildlife, people, and prospects for the future. These texts don't provide in-depth information, but they do give students plenty of facts and informative graphics. Easy to read, these books will appeal to armchair travelers, those looking for background information on Western Australia or southern Africa, and report writers.?Allison Trent Bernstein, Blake Middle School, Medfield, MA
