Children's LiteratureWith over 760,000 square miles, Mexico is a land of many different geographical faces. The Chihuahuan Desert offers white sand and dry, hot air. The tropical areas of Mexico, sitting about 3,000 feet above sea level, average 77 degrees. Above those, the plateau region in central Mexico averages about 60 degrees. Throw into the mix volcanoes, six months with little or no rain, hurricanes, tsunamis, and tropical storms, and you have the mixture for a unique landscape. Counter that with the coral reefs, beautiful sandy beaches, wonderful mountains, and even a rain forest to create an environment that attracts many to the country. This book is a part of the "Our Southern Neighbor Mexico" series. 2003, Mason Crest Publishers, Ages 10 to 18.
