The text introduces each one from a historical perspective and beautiful color photographs offer inviting views, while maps, sidebars, and featured quotes add variety to the pages. Central and South America discusses Angel Falls, the Amazon River, the Atacama Desert, the Galápagos Islands, the Montecristo Cloud Forest, Poás Volcano, and the Andes Mountains. Back matter includes a time line, glossary, source notes, a selected bibliography, and lists of recommended books and Internet sites.
