Through the Lens
Leah Bendavid-Val (Editor)
National Geographic; October 2003

For more than 100 years, National Geographic has set the standard for nature, culture, and wildlife photography. Now, in Through the Lens, 250 spectacular images some famous, others rarely seen are gathered in one lavish and beautiful volume. Through the Lens is divided into geographical regions Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, the Americas and Oceans and Isles with a special section devoted to space exploration. Each geographical section features an outstanding array of photographs that exemplifies the area's unique people, wildlife, archaeology, culture, architecture and environment, accompanied by brief but informative captions. From Barry Bishop's heroic Mount Everest climb in the 1950s to the glorious wildlife of Asia and Africa, from ancient Maya culture to the Afghan girl found 17 years after her piercing green eyes captivated the world, these are some of the finest and most important photographs ever taken.



The Frogs
National Geographic Society
National Geographic; March 2000

Tree frogs are some of nature's most colorful acrobats and in this book, we get a close-up look at these amazing amphibians. Readers will see how their sticky toes help the tiny frogs grip as they leap from branch to branch. They'll watch as a frog uses its balloon-like throat sac to croak out a message. And they'll marvel at how a frog can blend into its environment and practically disappear! A back-cover activity demonstrates the wide variety and range of tree frogs, whose habitat circles the globe.
