U. S. Landforms

by Dana Meachen Rau

Part of a Series: The U. S. Regions.

From mountains and volcanoes to rivers and waterfalls, this title explains how various landforms have come to be and how they are constantly changing. The volume opens with two statements that readers will be able to determine as true or false by the end. Chapters then cover “Making Mountains,” “Carving Out Rock,” and other topics related to landform creation. A section outlines the importance of “Protecting Natural Treasures.” The clean design, maps, diagrams, numerous photos, and an illustrated time line make the pages visually appealing as well as informative. A spread of book and Web site resources, a glossary, and an index make up the back matter.
