MAJOR HOOPLE QUESTION: How was the Sahara Desert formed? ANSWER: The Sahara Desert lies in the northern part of Africa. There was a time, long ago, when this region was not desert but a land of rivers and vegetation. At that time (upper left), ice sheets covered much of Europe. Moisture from them was blown over northern Africa. As the Ice Age ended, the ice sheets over Europe melted and disappeared (upper right) and, for lack of rain, the land of the Sahara turned into hills and valleys of shifting sand. The Arabs, especially those called Bedouins, made a remarkable adaptation to desert conditions. Living in tents, they made and still make great use of camels to cross the desert country. These unique animals are able to go for a long time on a small amount of water; they do not sweat as other animals do and so conserve moisture. Here and there in the Sahara underground, water bubbles out in the form of springs. Around such an oasis, rich vegetation and palm trees grow, casting refreshing shade. (Maureen B.
