Summary

Summary

Are you over your head when it comes to explaining fjords, orbital velocity, quasars and other geographical concepts? Then the Dictionary of Geography would be a good addition to your home resource library. It defines more than 1000 geographical, meteorological and geological terms. This is not the geography of lists of capes and bays, but a comprehensive, living geography that invoves man in relatino to his environmetn. A wonderful book that is valuable either in planning a geography curriculum or, in the case of parents, in helping their children better appreciate and understand the highlights of the field. - Booklist
