    Gr 3-7-These introductory overviews of broad ecological regions of the globe and the peoples who inhabit them cover a lot of material in a very few pages. Of the two, Rain Forests, which profiles the tropical areas of Latin America, Africa, and Asia, is more successful. Oldfield clearly explains tropical rain forest ecology and the importance of such resources to people throughout the world. The author acknowledges the economic pressures and exploitation that threaten the ecological balance but also includes examples of alternatives such as forest reserves and national parks that may help curb the rapid destruction. Unfortunately, there is no mention of temperate rain forests. The full-color photographs, while adequate to support the text, are often small and sometimes marred by the loss of visual information in the gutters. However, the illustrative problems are greater in The Arctic. For example, a small map showing the range of Arctic peoples has tiny lettering that is difficult to read. Some of Rootes's shifts in tense create a certain ambiguity about which activities and beliefs are part of the past and which are part of contemporary culture. He is less careful than Oldfield to define terms. Of the two books, Rain Forests is better written.-Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
