This showcase atlas takes the reader on the ultimate round-the-world trip. It not only portrays the Siberian wastes with a beautifully detailed map, it also shows and tells you what it is like to roam across them as a Nenets reindeer herder. Not content with detailing the contours of Africa's Great Rift Valley, it takes you there by looking at the culture of the Ethiopian farmers plowing its base. From Bolivia's bustling markets to carnival time in Venice, the World Atlas brings together views from windows all over the world. Facts, maps, satellite images, optional digital material, and local stories make this book a global yet personal experience.
This revised edition of DK's groundbreaking 2003 atlas has been refreshed with beautiful, bright, new maps, and a topical introductory section..
