Children's Literature
Over 200 countries and territories in the world today are filled with people who speak thousands of languages, but it wasn't always this way. Humans have evolved for many years and were most likely found in Africa, Asia, and Europe 100,000 years ago. Due to extensive exploration, the world now boasts 6.14 billion inhabitants with an increase expected to reach 9.02 billion by the year 2050. Philip Steele has captured the essence of people, places, and cultures in this highly organized atlas, which covers all the populated continents of the world. Various peoples, their survival, their nations, and their governments are discussed. Detailed information is imparted for regional sections of North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania. Travel, work, poverty and wealth, heroes, holidays, and industries are some of the subjects covered. Short, well-labeled, fact-filled sections cut to the heart of the material presented. Bright flags from a variety of countries are enhanced with captions of each country's capital, population, and area. Vivid photos and colorful maps add to the appeal of the text. Upon completing the book, readers will understand "who we are, where we live, and how we live" on this vast blue planet. 2002, Copper Beach Books/Millbrook Press,
