Africa, Australia, and the Islands of the Pacific

by Nellie B. Allen

Description: Take a guided tour of the various countries on the continent of Africa, then proceed to Madagascar, Australia, and New Zealand before concluding your journey with visits to principal island groups in the Pacific. Along the way author Nellie B. Allen will introduce you to how geographical features influence the way of life of the residents in significant ways, from clothing and housing to food and occupational pursuits. You will learn how topographical features and proximity to bodies of water affect the climate, which in turn determines what foodstuffs naturally grow in a region and what crops may thrive there if planted. This comprehensive tour will lead you to a greater appreciation for the peoples you encounter along the way, their various ways of living, and the agricultural and industrial pursuits they engage in. Questions throughout the text and suggested activities at the end of each chapter encourage you to consider the material more thoughtfully.
