Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
This book, profusely illustrated with photographs, is divided into broad sections devoted to understanding the types of regions, the peoples of these regions, uses and abuses of and threats to these regions, and their future. Maps and glossaries offer additional information to the reader. It provides insights into the special needs, and the riches, of the region of focus. The cultural, social, and economic variations among the peoples and places within each climatic zone are also considered and explored. A fine addition to a reference shelf, and to the resource racks of a teacher or librarian.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-Two books that offer descriptions of the geography, indigenous peoples, and ecology of desert and mountain environments around the world. The full-color photographs are plentiful, stunning, and carefully captioned. Terms defined in the glossary are in bold type. Page layout is clear, with a variety of typefaces and boxes to provide graphic unity and easy reading of the main text. Deserts offers a double-page spread about the Kalahari, Australian aborigines, the Tuaregs of the Sahara, Native Americans of the desert, and Mongolians. This format can only offer a simple introduction to the topic, but it is well done and may inspire students to do further reading. Mountains includes several major mountain ranges, such as the Alps, the Andes, the Rockies, the Himalayas, and mountains of Africa and New Guinea. These books will contribute to geography collections as well as to multicultural studies, and they will be enjoyed by browsers as well as researchers.-Dorcas Hand, Annunciation Orthodox School, Houston
