Summary
Of all the miracles of life, it is life's persistence that astounds the most. In the endless black of the deepest caves, blind fish find their way. In a frozen forest, snow monkeys find a cosy hot spring to keep warm. Even in the salt desert's barren cold, flamingoes bloom like vivid flowers. The 14 animals in this book defy the odds and make their homes in the unlikeliest of places-under the weight of seas, in the belly of tar pits, in the sandstorm's mouth
Summary
Poetic text looks at fourteen animals who defy the odds by thriving in Earth's most dangerous places where they live
