Life in Death Valley: It is the hottest, driest place in North America. But this is no typical desert. Nowhere else is a land so exquisite in its beauty, yet brutal in its extremes. Here, the rule is simple - adapt or perish. Witness how fascinating desert dwellers ingeniously outwit Mother Nature in their quest to survive.
Andes, the dragon's back: With glaciers, volcanoes, snow-capped peaks, enormous deserts, tropical rainforests, caustic salt pans, and cloud forests, the Andes are an extraordinary world of diverse terrains, extreme temperatures, and a staggering array of wildlife. Five thousand miles long and extending over seven countries, this high mountain range boasts some of the highest, saltiest, wettest and driest terrains on the planet.
