A mountain is an area of land that is much higher than the land around it. This interesting new book looks at homes on mountains and the unique way of life in these often remote areas. Detailed photography of homes made from logs, carved rock, and mud bricks shows what each one looks like inside. Other interesting topics include the special challenges of transportation, work, and school at high altitudes, as well as how people living on mountains are affected by extreme temperatures, avalanches, mudslides, and earthquakes. A world map identifies the cities and countries featured in the book. Teacher’s guide available.
