May Book of the Month
This beautifully produced book explores different countries of the world and how communities and cultures have been shaped by where they are situated. Maps of regions and oceans bring faraway places to life, with illustrated geographical and architectural features, people plants and wildlife, from oil fields to Buddhist monks to the Amazon Rainforest.
The Barefoot Books World Atlas shows how all parts of the planet are interconnected and looks at the challenges which face us all in creating a sustainable future. With an introduction which includes the story of the solar system and the history of map-making, this is a beautiful addition to any book shelf.
