Egypt the Land

Front Cover
Crabtree Publishing Company, 2008 - History - 31 pages
Four new countries and nine updated editions have been added to Bobbie Kalman's popular Lands, Peoples, and Cultures series. These powerful and intimate portraits of countries use up-to-date information and full-color photography. Presented in a mini series format, three books per country ensures thorough coverage of all the important aspects. It also allows more students to work on different projects at the same time. Covering more than basic history and geography, students will be fascinated to learn about:

-- the land... geography, agriculture, transportation, history, industry, and glorious wonders

-- the people... unique customs, customs we share, problems faced by minority groups and women

-- the culture... modern festivals, ancient processions, food, games, and more

Egypt is a land of startling contrasts -- parched deserts and lush oases, modern city buildings and ancient brick village houses. Spectacular photos feature Egypt's mighty temples and pyramids alongside modern-day life on the Nile.

Topics include:
-- the Nile Valley and the Sinai Peninsula
-- the Sahara Desert and Qattara depression
-- sandstorms, drought, and flooding
-- farming, transportation, and industry
-- thriving cities such as Cairo, Alexandria, and Luxor
-- wildlife and the problems of pollution and population
