North America: A World in One Continent (Hardcover) Book

SKU ID #446060
$30.00
The North American continent stretches over 9.5 million square miles, and is home to more than 500 million people, who share it with hundreds of thousands of species of mammals, birds, insects, and plants—many of them extraordinary, unforgettable, and unique. With 150,000 miles of coastline, North America also has the longest and most abundant shores of any continent on Earth.

In the stunning eight-part series from Discovery Channel, renowned nature producer Huw Cordey travels from the Arctic to the Tropics, revealing the wonders of the most dynamic continent on Earth—from the stunning glow of the Aura Borealis in Alaska to the thousands of tornadoes that batter the Great Plains each year to the 55-ton crystals in Mexico’s Crystal Cave.

North America, the companion book to the television series, follows the producers as they tell the story of this rich and eclectic land through more than 250 gorgeous full-color photographs and engaging essays. Chock-full of interesting facts about the various ecology and wildlife of the many regions of the continent— Prairies, Coasts, Mountains, Freshwater, Deserts, and Forests— North America exposes the continent as you’ve never seen it before.

        Comments about this product:

        This is probably the best nature program I have ever watched, for so many reasons, and on so many levels. Above all, kudos to whomever integrated the footage and story lines. Tom Selleck delivers the most engaging and heart-warming narratives. He turns the animals into neighbors and citizens. Accompanying music was humorously appropriate, and the bouncing around the continent reminds us that we are all related and living together under a really big roof. The film making is stunning, cineflex?? and the weaving of shots into the stories that Tom Selleck tells is incredible. It has universal appeal. You could translate this into any language and show it on any continent and people would love it.

                  I sent this to my father for Father's Day and he absolutely loves the book even though he hasn't seen the show. Myself I've not seen the book but I soooooo love the show. Thank you Discovery! We could use even more shows like this!

                    This book is a trip across North America on your sofa. Beautiful photos and interesting narrative. You would pay much more for this book anywhere else. I got it in a bundle with the pre-order of the DVD of the series.
