Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico

Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico

by Jen Green




The Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico together form the wider Caribbean, a region of warm weather, beautiful islands and beaches, and diverse peoples. This book takes an in-depth look at the two bodies of water-their formation, their environment, and the life found in their waters and along their shores. It also explores the region's history and many cultures and explains the challenges-from hurricanes to coastal development and environmental threats-that face the people who live around the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea today.
