A journey through a tropical rain forest could be the perfect pick-me-up. And thanks to Jungle, you can visit the life-teeming tropics without ever leaving the comforts and conveniences of your own home. In Jungle, all manner of flora and fauna are explored--from the treetops to the forest floor--in Central American, South American, African, Tropical Asian, and Australasian rain forests. Vivid photographs with intriguing captions introduce readers to exotic places and creatures they ve likely never heard of before. Meet, for example, the harpy eagle, the pygmy anteater, the shovel-nosed catfish, the spear-nosed bat, and the gaboon viper. Learn about the natural medicinal powers of many jungle plants. Discover the various foods, such as ginger, cocoa, sweet potato, and pineapple, which are sold around the world but have their origins in the rain forest.
