Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Brazil is located in eastern South America along the Atlantic Ocean. Only slightly smaller in size than the U.S., it is by far the largest and most populous country in South America. From French Guiana to Uruguay, every South American country except Chile and Ecuador shares a border with Brazil. Brazil provides a fascinating, current, and informative look at South America's most powerful country. It is an ideal source of information for geography classes, country reports, and students interested in South America. Valuable case studies cover such important topics as pollution and poaching in the Pantanal Wildlife Reserve, the use of forest plants for medicinal purposes, and the poverty that causes people to leave the state of Bahia for other states in the Southeast. Graphs, charts, and statistics show Brazil's population growth, its largest cities, its natural resources, and much more. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

From Booklist: Reviewed with Rob Bowden's Kenya.
Gr. 6-10. These titles in the new Countries of the World series dispel stereotypes with modern, wide-angle views of their countries. Chapters in both titles cover similar categories: physical geography, resources, ethnic populations, tourism, and commerce. Kenya glosses over colonial impact, but it includes a detailed overview of the tensions between commercial development in an impoverished nation and the need to protect natural resources and wildlife. Brazil is frank about the country's racial frictions and economic inequality, and there are several photos that show profoundly poor slums. A welcome departure from series that make sunny, generic pronouncements about a country's populations or skim over ugly facts, these titles offer a wealth of nearly up-to-date information and a realistic introduction to their subjects. They also feature good-quality color photos of urban and rural homes and buildings and traditional and western lifestyles. A chart for converting the text's metric figures and a list of suggested readings are appended. Fine resources for reports or classroom support. Gillian Engberg
