The Great Victoria Desert

The Great Victoria Desert

Description

This book describes the geological makeup and history of the Great Victorian Desert in Australia. Used in modern times for mining and the testing of atomic bombs, this vast, sandy area has been home to a number of indigeous peoples for thousands of years. Although there is little rain, the desert blooms with a variety of plants. Readers will learn about the Mamungari Conservation Park, which is known for a eucalyptus tree called Ooldea mallee with large, spectacular red, pink, or yellow flowers.
