"Though they cover about 20 per cent of the earth's land mass, deserts contain only 4 per cent of the world's population..The author describes not only the deserts themselves--the forces of climate, geography, and geology which brought them into being--but also surveys all aspects of desert life..who have managed to adapt themselves to so difficult and rigorous a life." -from the dust jacket.
