Overview

This exciting new series gives young readers their first in-depth look at the United States. Each volume provides a colorful, comprehensive portrait of a state's history, people, land, economy, and government. Readers will enjoy the "Fun Facts" sprinkled throughout each book and learn even more about state facts, symbols, and famous people. A chapter on "Things to See and Do" explores each state's unique places and activities. Each title includes a time line, biographies of notable people, informative maps and charts, a glossary, recommended books and Web sites, and an index.

Anyone who likes the outdoors will love Idaho. Mountains cover more than half the land. More rivers run through it than any other state. Idaho also boasts the deepest canyon in the United States. The famous Snake River and a number of designated wilderness and recreational areas help preserve its rustic atmosphere. From hunting and fishing to skiing and kayaking, Idaho's wild landscape offers plenty of activities. People who live in its cities specialize in manufacturing high-tech office equipment, processed and raw foods, and a variety of wood and paper products. Residents and visitors never tire of the vast opportunities available in Idaho.
