Grade 5-8-- An introduction to Bolivia that gives the geography, culture, and history of the country from a South American perspective. Blair describes the combination of the cultures of Spain and the Andean Indians that characterizes Bolivia, with the emphasis on the dynamism of this combination. The Indian population, made up of Aymara, Quechua, and others, still constitutes a large percentage, despite the ravages suffered under the conquering Spanish. A small country (about the size of Texas and California), Bolivia's landlocked geography is dominated by the towering Andes, and the culture reflects the hardships imposed by coping with such surroundings. More a social history in its overview of daily life and culture, the book includes many details of government and economics. Black-and-white photos are not of great quality or clarity. Some recipes are included; they require adult supervision. A solid addition to nonfiction collections, this is useful for reports and is interesting reading. --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA
