Description
Mountains describes how continental plates clash and buckle, thrusting up rugged chains on every continent. The book also relates the dangers of mountain life, such as avalanches, and how mountainous areas attract developers of hydropower and tourism. Readers will learn how people, plants, and animals have adapted to mountain environments through colorful charts, dramatic photos, and clearly written text.
