Synopsis

The latest in the series that includes best-selling That's Not in My American History Book and That's Not in My Science Book, this book brings geography to life exploring the "who" behind the discovery of various lands and the "what" behind how our world changes. From the earliest compass to today's handheld GPS systems, author Kate Kelly shows how people throughout time have navigated the world. She also rectifies the past by explaining why some people have gotten short shrift in geography books. (If Leif Eriksson's mom were alive, she would pre-order a copy of this book!) Kelly also explores "human geography," including such diverse subjects as how geography affects the spread of human disease and how the global marketplace is causing our world to shrink.

Kate Kelly has authored or coauthored over twenty books, including That's Not in My Science Book. She lives in Larchmont, NY.
