Information Earth

Here is a cool book, published by Hammond, filled with information about Earth as divided into the United States, Canada and the World. The book gives an overview of environmental concerns. One frightening fact is that only 3% of the water on our planet is drinkable. Has the recent travesty in the Gulf of Mexico affected our potable water?

The book is divided into regions and is packed with almanac-like facts about each country and each state in the United States.

I found the religious facts of each region particularly fascinating.

Each area of the planet is discussed by topography, climate and natural resources. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon reading facts and figures with a green slant.
