Geography Pictures for a Living Education is a delightful picture book series designed to enhance and bring to life the wonder and beauty of the world we live in. For students and young people learning about the special nature and design of God’s creation; the animals, birds, and plants; the people and their work and industries; the nations and the fruit of their soil; these books will engage the mind and ignite the imagination, bringing the narrative of their travel tales and geographical readers to life.
In this first book of the series, Geography Pictures for a Living Education: The New World at Home, the content is dependant on the geography reader of the same name, first written in 1869 under the title of The World at Home. Having now received a comprehensive twenty-first century revision by Rachel E. North, the accompanying picture book features over one hundred photographs and illustrations, ranging from the powerful marvel of an Icelandic Geyser, to the beauty of a burst cotton pod, to the fascinating history of the indigenous people and tribes of the Americas, and to the hardiness of the animals that occupy the farthest north. All subject matter covered in the geography reader is visually represented in the pages of this book.
Printed on 200 gsm glossy paper, the physical book is spiral bound for ease of use, and all pictures are clearly labelled.
