Book Description

March 25 2007
A visual odyssey that will change the way we see our planet, this remarkable book, companion to the acclaimed Discovery Channel/ BBC series, is an enduring and awe-inspiring record of one of the most ambitious natural history projects ever undertaken. Using the latest aerial surveillance, state-of-the-art cameras, and high definition technology, the creators of Planet Earth have assembled more than 400 stunning photographs of wondrous natural landscapes from around the globe, including incredible footage of the rarely spotted, almost mythical creatures that live in these habitats. Many of the images reveal inaccessible places that few have seen and record animal behavior that has never been filmed or photographed before. With the help of this highly advanced technology and the world's premier wildlife photographers, the book takes us on a spectacular journey from the world's greatest rivers and impressive gorges, to its mightiest mountains, hidden caves and caverns, and vast deserts. Planet Earth captures breathtaking sequences of predators and their prey, lush vistas of forests viewed from the tops of towering trees, the oceans and their mysterious creatures viewed from beneath the surface, and much more—in a magnificent adventure that brings unknown wonders of the natural world into our living rooms.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In this gorgeous coffee-table book, an offshoot of the Discovery Channel/ BBC series of the same name, zoologist and BBC producer Fothergill takes readers on a kaleidoscopic tour of the flora, fauna and natural history of the Earth's poles, forests, plains, deserts, mountains and oceans. The series of jaw-dropping photographs starts with a view of Earth from the moon (and pointing out the obvious but shocking fact that no one has been able to see it live since the 1972 Apollo 17 mission). Other images reveal the astonishing variety of geology and life around the globe, including an emperor penguin eyeing an enormous jade-green iceberg; a grove of ancient monkey puzzle trees on the slopes of the Andes; a wild (and endangered) two-humped Bactrian camel strolling with her calf across the Gobi Desert; a long-furred, red-eyed gelada (a kind of primate) perched on a cliff in the Ethiopian highlands; a cave explorer parachuting into Mexico's 1,100-foot-deep Cave of Swallows; a blimplike nerpa (the only known fresh-water seal) swimming through Siberia's Lake Baikal; and the lacy undulations of the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta captured by satellite. The book's only drawback is its large size and heavy weight, which makes for cumbersome reading. (Mar.)

From Booklist

This is the companion volume to the BBC/Discovery Channel series I^ Planet Earth, narrated by renowned naturalist and pioneer of the nature documentary Sir David Attenborough and produced by Fothergill. The two paired up to create the series I^ The Blue Planet (1998), the first natural history documentary presented in high definition, and now Fothergill presents a collection of more than 400 photographs that focus on what is most wonderful about the living world. He takes readers on a whirlwind tour from the frozen poles to the great forests, across the Great Plains and great sands, up to the mountain heights, down into the underworld, into fresh water and rain forests, over to shallow seas and down to the ocean depths, capturing the wonders of plant and animal life. A superb wake-up call to protect the treasures of the planet that sustain, and enrich, us, I^ Planet Earth is a feast for the eyes and soul, presented with the best and latest technology.

5.0 out of 5 stars MAGICAL Nov. 8 2009
Truthfully, I was a little disappointed in the imagery, which i expected to be as vivid as those in the dvd series.
However, i still find it wonderful, and a great companion to the dvd series. Its more accessible for finding information on particular or isolated things.
Worth my money.

There is nothing more amazing than the photography contained in this project. They manage to show you something about the world around you that you would never have imagined.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moving to the core Nov. 22 2007
This is an informative but above all, moving journey around our planet. You'll see things you've never seen, guaranteed. The series inspires a renewed appreciation for the planet we call 'home' and hopefully, a deep conviction to do all we possibly can to take MUCH better care of it.
