Cultural Geography, 4th ed.
The textbook provides a survey of geographic principles through a regional approach. Beginning in North America, students will "travel" from continent to continent around the world studying the geography, cultures, land forms, climates, resources, economy, religions, and government of each country. This new edition features a new opening chapter and is filled with photographs, charts, maps, and first-person accounts that make this "virtual world tour" an exciting and stimulating exploration of world geography and culture.
