This is the second title of the Going Wild children's adventure series, written by world-famous naturalist Brian Keating. He presents personal accounts of his actual adventures and provides fact boxes, notes, definitions and stunning photographs.
This book teaches children about wildlife, the environment and the conservation of two regions: the Arctic and Antarctic. Readers are also encouraged to try a hands-on activity; build their own backyard adventure; and if they want to learn more about wildlife conservation, peruse a list of organizations at the back of the book.
