Surviving the Desert
(Gareth Stevens Publishing, Aug. 15, 2016)
Dehydration. Freezing night temperatures. Scorpions. These are just some of the dangers that await those traveling through the desert. With preparation, anyone can survive. But what if something goes wrong? This book introduces readers to the desert ecosystem in an inventive, fascinating way through its perils. Real-life tales of those who have survived the hardest parts of desert living encourage readers to be prepared when visiting an area with little water, lots of sun, and quicksand. Full-color photographs accompany each story, while multiple-choice questions help readers assess each scary situation.
