Do You Dare Visit Death Valley?
No landform could sound quite as scary as Death Valley! Its name came from a group of gold seekers who almost didn't make it out alive—and some of their companions didn't. In this book, lower elementary readers explore this hot, dry part of the American Southwest and the national park that now exists there. The main content includes the flora and fauna found there as well as the adaptations they need to survive in the heat of the day and cold of the night. Full-color photographs show the unique beauty of the valley, despite its name.
