Synopsis

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 seven-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-colour 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.
