GREAT NATURE -- Land of Extremes: Ethiopia

Synopsis
Ethiopia -- the scorched earth of Africa. This is a place where temperatures soar to more than 55 degrees Celsius while at the same time cooler high-altitude lakes feed some of Africa's most spectacular waterfalls. For the past 30 million years, volcanic activity has created a uniquely diverse terrain. Now, one man risks life and limb to come face-to-face with the driving forces that are still sculpting the landscape to this day. As parts of the region continue to sweat, local people adapt to survive. Ethiopia is a land of extremes and it soon becomes clear that nature hasn't finished her work here yet.
