This book describes the geological makeup and history of the Atacama Desert in Chile. One of the driest areas of the world, some parts never receive any rain. The desert's climate can be cold, sometimes producing snow and fog. Readers will be fascinated to learn that the Atacama's soil is so similar to soil samples from Mars that NASA goes to this desert to test its exploration instruments.
