Divided by geographical region, this beautifully illustrated World Atlas looks at the way in which communities and cultures across the world have been shaped by their natural environment, and at the ideas and initiatives which are shaping the future. It shows how all parts of the planet are interconnected and looks at the challenges which face us all in creating a sustainableﾠfuture.
The introduction includes the story of the solar system and the history of map-making. Maps of regions and oceans bring faraway places to life, with illustrated geographical and architectural features, people plants and wildlife, from oil fields to Buddhist monks to the Amazon Rainforest. Fold-out booklets reveal fascinating facts about each region. The text has been written by earth enthusiast and TV presenter Nick Crane, and the maps and illustrations are by artist David Dean.
Probably most suited to upper primary (ages 7-11) but likely to captivate budding geographers and explorers of all ages.
