Mount Everest

by Megan Lappi

Part of a Series: Wonders of the World.

This volume on the world’s highest mountain is packed with information. Starting with some background on the geography and geology of Everest, it moves on to details of life on the mountain and the history—and, thrillingly, the dangers—of its exploration. Abundant text boxes, incorporating quizzes, a time line, maps, and other facts, round out the book, which is illustrated with contemporary and historical photographs. Back matter includes a “What Have You Learned?” section, an activity, key words, and an index. A book code and link allow access to further information on the publisher’s Web site.
