Don't Know Much About Geography
Don't Know Much About Geography
From bestselling author Kenneth C. Davis comes a treasure trove of answers to questions about our world. — Was there an Atlantis? — What's the smallest country in the world? — What's the difference between a jungle and a rain forest? — Kenneth C. Davis, author of Don't Know Much About(r) History, Don't Know Much About(r) the Civil War and ...  more » turns his inimitable wit and wide-ranging knowledge to the subject of geography, and proves once and for all that there is a lot more to it than labeling countries on a map.

From often amusing perceptions people have had through the ages about the world and the universe to the changing map of today, Davis shows how geography is really a great crossroad of many fields: biology, meteorology, astronomy, history, economics, and even politics. In this lively, entertaining, and endlessly fascinating presentation, you'll hear about the personalities that helped shape the world and learn the answers to questions that have vexed most of us since grade school. Along the way, Davis offers an affectionate ode to the earth: a celebration of the earth, a searching investigation of the destruction of our habitat, and a practical guide to saving our home planet.

For anyone who has felt geographically ignorant ever since gas stations stopped handing out free maps, Don't Know Much About(r) Geography is enormously informative entertainment.
