These volumes give the reader an indepth view of eight regions of the world -- all through the fascinating, scientific art of mapmaking. Accessible and detailed maps introduce young explorers to the diversity of each region. Each map provides a complete picture of the area studied and how it has evolved over the centuries, covering not only the regions climate and weather, but also its transportation, major crops, religious affiliations and political boundaries. The thoughtful text explains and expands upon the information in the maps -- detailing not only how data was compiled but also how it has changed since the first maps were drawn thousands of years ago. Included in each volume are a glossary, an index and a bibliography.
