The World's Wild Shores by: National Geographic Society
The World's Wild Shores. This book focuses on untrammeled areas in five major climate zones. The tropical features archipelagos of Indonesia and the Pacific, with shores of lava and coral. Windy Atlantic islands of the U.S. and Donna National Park in Spain highlight the warm temperature zone. The perilous coast of Chile and Peru provides treasurers from chill sea and bone-dry, legend-haunted deserts. For the cool temperature zone, British Columbia and Alaska offer steep-walled fjords, mist-hung evergreens, and holiday fun. Antarctica completes the story.
