The illustrated guides examine several cultures which have developed and thrived in these environments.

(2) "In the Mountains" presents: Mountain People in Appalachia; The Kazaks of Xinjiang; The Mountain People of Tibet; The Indians of Peru; The People of the White Reindeer; and the Bhutias of Sikkim. (3) "In the Polar Regions" looks at: The Inuit of Alaska; The Inuit of Northern Canada; The Lapps of Europe; and Homes of the Siberian People. (4) "On the Water" presents: On the Water in Hong Kong; The Ma'dans of Iraq; The Sons of the Lake; The People of Kampong Ayer; and The Aymara Indians of Lake Titicaca. The last two books in the series: "In the Future" and "In Space" invite students to consider influences that might affect the design and development of futuristic habitats. Each book includes a glossary and an index.
