Description
A lavishly color-illustrated paean to geography as the source not only of the big picture, the macroworld, but of the microcosm of neighborhood and street, automobile and air pollution, the supermarket and the "super" poor. The chapters address the forces of nature that power the earth; the spread of people to every corner of the planet; how the world makes a living--or not; where we live and why; the geography of war and peace, freedom and oppression; and making the drawings that tell us where we are. For a general audience from junior high school on. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
