Description


Start your exploration of North America with New England, then proceed south through the Appalachian Highlands and the Coastal Plain before turning west to the Mississippi Valley and beyond to the Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, and Pacific Coast. Along the way author Nellie B. Allen introduces you to the geographical features that influence the crops grown and the minerals mined, with particular stress on the the way water flows and efforts to control its movement both for agricultural use and transportation of goods. Canada too is visited from east to west, then Mexico and the seven countries of Central America, followed by the islands of the Caribbean. A comprehensive tour that connects the reader to all the countries of North America leading to greater appreciation for its peoples, their various ways of living, and the agricultural and industrial pursuits they engage in. Questions throughout the text and suggested activities at the end of each chapter encourage the reader to consider the material more thoughtfully.
