Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Argentina is home to an amazing variety of landscapes—from evergreen rainforests in the tropical north and rugged mountains in the west to stormy Cape Horn in the south and sunny beaches in the east. The author briefly discusses the various geographical areas found on this long South American country (the Gran Chaco region, Mesopotamia, the Pampa plains, the Andes mountains, Patagonia, and Tierra del Fuego) and provides information about Argentina's climate and weather, ancestors, famous cities (Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Rosario, Ushuaia, Mendoza, Salta), crops and livestock, ranches, modes of transportation, industry and resources, and plants and wildlife. This informative volume contains dozens of colorful photographs with captions, detailed descriptions, a map, fascinating sidebars, a glossary and an index. The book is a wonderful learning tool. Part of "The Land, Peoples and Cultures" series. 2001, Crabtree Publishing Company, $20.60 and $7.95. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Debra Briatico
