Mountains, rivers, lakes, oceans and other geographical components have always affected the ways Americans live, from settlement patterns to industries. What's the highest mountain peak in the United States? Which is the longest river? How have wars been affected by geographical landmarks in this country? Why did trade build up in some areas and not in others? Students can find answers to these and other questions in this five-volume set, each volume covering a different region. Entries, arranged alphabetically, explore the ways in which a particular geographical feature has affected the lives of those who settled in the area. Students will discover why farming emerged in some areas while big industries built up in others, and how people have to adapt their ways of living to accommodate their environments. Information on how each feature is being affected today by such factors as air and water pollution is also provided so students can develop a broad understanding of both geography and science. Volume 1: The Northeast Volume 2: The Southeast Volume 3: The Midwest Volume 4: The West Volume 5: The Southwest Grades 6-8
