Across This Land: A Regional Geography of the United States and Canada Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on decades of research and written in clear, concise prose by one of the foremost geographers in North America, John C. Hudson's Across This Land is a comprehensive regional geography of the North American continent. Clearly organized, the book divides the entire United States and Canada into six major regions, then further subdivides them into twelve smaller areas. Hudson emphasizes each region or area's distinguishing place-specific attributes, including — to a larger degree than previous regional geographies — political considerations. In this way, the book tells the story of each region, relying on a brisk narrative that reveals the dynamic processes of their distinctive characteristics. The first extensive regional geography of the North American continent in over seventy-five years, Hudson's Across This Land will become the standard text in geography courses dealing with Canada and the U.S. as well as a popular reference work for scholars, students, and lay readers.

Book News Annotation:

Acknowledging that he has limited this text to the portions of North America he knows best (thus neglecting Mexico), Hudson (geography, Nortwestern U.) divides the geography of Canada and the United States into six regions and 12 subregions and proceeds to describe the human and physical geographies of the chosen areas. Historical developments and political and economic realities are woven into the text. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
