Was there really an Atlantis? Is America one continent or two? And what's so bad about the Badlands? If geography questions leave you scratching your head, you're not alone. Kenneth Davis, author of the acclaimed national best-seller Don't Know Much About(R) History, makes geography fun as he takes us on a fascinating, breathtaking, and hilarious grand tour of the planet Earth.
Geography doesn't begin and end with maps, and in Don't Know Much About(R) Geography, Davis shows the connection between geography and everyday life, as well as how geography has influenced historical events. If you can't tell the difference between a Mercator Projector and a Magnetic Pole, let Kenneth Davis open your eyes to this wide, wild, and wonderful world.
