About this title

Synopsis:

A coast-to-coast tour of America's natural treasures describes the richly varied regions of North America and their ecology, and plant and animal life, and the history of human occupation of the land

From School Library Journal:

YA-- A visually exciting natural history, with a unique emphasis on the relationship between the geography and history of the continent. Written as a companion piece to the PBS series,``Land of the Eagle,'' this work can stand alone. Unlike most coffee-table fare, Peck's text is informative and poetically engaging, rife with primary sources and quotes, and accompanied by superb full-color photographs and maps. Each chapter highlights a different land region, its natural landscape, wildlife, and the effects of human history on the land. YAs with an interest in American history, geography, geology, and zoology will appreciate the skillful intermingling of historical figures responding to the terrain and ecology of each region.
