Summary: This book, companion to the Discovery Channel/BBC series, is an enduring record of one of the most ambitious natural history projects ever undertaken. Using the latest aerial surveillance, state-of-the-art cameras, and high definition technology, the creators have assembled more than 400 photographs of landscapes from around the globe, including footage of rarely seen creatures. Many of the images reveal inaccessible places and record animal behavior that has never been filmed or photographed before. With the help of this advanced technology and the world's premier wildlife photographers, the book takes us on a journey from the world's greatest rivers and impressive gorges, to its mightiest mountains, hidden caves and caverns, and vast deserts. Includes sequences of predators and their prey, lush vistas of forests viewed from the tops of towering trees, the oceans and their mysterious creatures viewed from beneath the surface, and more.--From publisher description.
