Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Have you ever wondered what a badland is? What about a gulch? Do you wonder what an isthmus is? Or a seamount? What about the difference between a plateau and a plain, or a knob and a knoll? Well, here are the answers!

The sixty-three entries from A to Z describe the earth's features — its physical geography — from the highest mountain peak to the deepest ocean trench, in clear, concise terms. Each entry is beautifully illustrated in full color.

This is a perfect introduction to the dramatic and fascinating face of the vast world around us. The author and artist of the best-selling MAPS & GLOBES team up again, this time to prove that geography can indeed be an adventure.

Synopsis:

"Sixty-two words, from 'archipelago' to 'zone, ' with brief, clear definitions amplified in large, full-color illustrations and maps. . . . An attractive introduction to geography's rich vocabulary; it should also be an inspiration to budding word-collectors".--"Kirkus Reviews".
