This book is a general introduction to Botswana, the land and its people. Readers are going to learn some basic facts about Botswana including its geography and history. Also covered in the book are the nation's resources including crops and minerals as well as tourist attractions. The book is intended for those who are learning about Botswana for the first time and for those who are going to Botswana. It's also intended for the general reader who does not even intend to go to Botswana. It also looks at some cultural aspects of Botswana and ethnic tensions which, although not highly pronounced as in many other African countries, pose a challenge to the nation's leadership in a country which prides itself as a role model on the continent in terms of democracy and harmonious relations among people of different tribes and races. Tourists and students will find this book to be useful as an introductory work on one of the most vibrant, most prosperous, and most peaceful countries in Africa; a nation composed of people of different ethnic and racial backgrounds. Botswana also is one of the very few countries on the continent whose population is mostly composed of one ethnic group and only a few others. Yet it is a land of stunning diversity in terms of its rich history, culture and way of life in spite of its very limited number of ethnic groups and sparse population in a vast expanse of territory which is also one of the largest countries in Africa in terms of area.
