Land and People of England
After the wonderful Canada book we posted, I have been on a mad tear throughout the catalog for geography of our world. I am willing to guess that American ignorance in world affairs and geography could be traced to the appalling collection of material still active in collections from the 60’s and 70’s (and in some cases, the 50’s!). So to kick off some great titles we found, we will start with our friends across the pond. This lovely gem is probably the most boring book I have seen in a long time. I also hesitate to tell our UK friends that Wales and Scotland were lumped in as chapters. (I guess they don’t get a book of their own.) But if you just have a nice English breakfast, you will feel better!
