Earth: By the Numbers

By: Steve Jenkins

Through infographics, illustrations, facts, and figures, readers will learn about the complex and wonderful place we call home, Earth.
Discover some of the most fascinating aspects of our planet through astonishing numbers: the stretch of time from Earth's formation to the present, the misleading way the surface area of a continent can appear on a map, the angle of Earth's axis that creates the seasons, what percentage of Earth's land is covered in deserts or forests or cities, and so much more.
With his signature style, Steve Jenkins explores the most fascinating fields of natural science.

Glossary. Bibliography. Full-color maps, graphics, and cut- and torn-paper collage illustrations.
