Item description for Germany - the Land (Lands, Peoples, and Cultures) by Kathryn Lane...
Four new countries and nine updated editions have been added to Bobbie Kalman's popular Lands, Peoples, and Cultures series. These powerful and intimate portraits of countries use up-to-date information and full-color photography. Presented in a mini series format, three books per country ensures thorough coverage of all the important aspects. It also allows more students to work on different projects at the same time. Covering more than basic history and geography, students will be fascinated to learn about:
-- the land... geography, agriculture, transportation, history, industry, and glorious wonders
-- the people... unique customs, customs we share, problems faced by minority groups and women
-- the culture... modern festivals, ancient processions, food, games, and more
The breathtaking land of Germany is featured from its rolling hills, forests, and mighty rivers, to the snow-capped Bavarian Alps in the southeast. Captivating full-color photos help convey Germany's beautiful landscape as well as its large cities, industry, farming and the environment.
Topics include: -- the center of Europe -- the Black Forest, Bavarian Alps, and Rhine River -- the German people -- Bavarians, Saxons, Turks, and Europeans -- Berlin and other bustling cities -- transportation and the car industry -- factories and farms -- joining the European Union -- wildlife -- cleaning up the environment
