The Extreme Earth invites readers on a globe-spanning tour of superlative mountain formations, from block mountains to volcanic sea mountains to high-altitude-landform "sky islands." Briskly written text directs students' attention to the complexity of these peaks, their changing nature, and related environmental issues.
