Summary, etc.: Navigating US geography can leave you feeling lost and all over the map. You need to know about all 50 states (Wisconsin has more than 600 kinds of cheese!), different landscapes and climates (from deserts to polar regions), and where to watch out for natural disasters (beware of Tornado Alley!). How can all these facts and locations make more sense? Infographics! The charts, maps, and illustrations in this book tell a visual story to help you better understand key concepts about our country's geography.
