Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Christian, the weatherman for Good Morning America, deftly combines facts about America's geography and people with writing that stimulates interest in geography and travel. One part focuses on features of the American landscapemountains, basins, lakes, rivers, and moreand the natural forces that have shaped them. The next part focuses on the American people, with details of population growth, occupation, income, birth, death, marriage, divorce, religion, and poverty. Half the book consists of short profiles of each state and territory. These outline the geographic features, principal cities, and the history and economy of each state. While other works for nonspecialists (e.g., almanacs) are better for reference purposes, Spencer's book has much to offer and could well be purchased by community and school libraries as well as individuals.Peter Kutner, Univ. of Oklahoma-Norman
