This book provides the reader with a fascinating insight into the region of West Africa country-by-country, examining the customs, history, geography, and natural world.Each title in this series includes a map of the countries in each volume, color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources.

Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader s comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there.
