El suelo y el clima (The Land and Climate of Latin America)


From Mexico to the tip of South America, Latin America features varied scenery, including deserts, grasslands, plains, and mountains. Some are extreme: The Andes is the world's longest mountain range, and the Atacama Desert has not had rain for over 400 years! Latin America's remarkable landscape is an essential factor in its surprisingly different climatic zones. This insightful volume offers a comprehensive tour of the many vibrant countries of this fascinating region, highlighting its most striking areas in vivid photographs. It is also an inviting exploration of geography, natural resources, and climate, components of the national social studies curriculum standards.
