The Geography of India: Sacred and Historic Places

Front Cover
Kenneth Pletcher Senior Editor, Geography and History
The Rosen Publishing Group, Inc, Aug 15, 2010 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 376 pages
With a landscape as diverse as the multitude of people that inhabit it, India hosts a wide range of communities, from remote villages nestled in the Himalayas to thriving urban centers. In many ways, it is a land of contrasts, as reflected in its geography shaped as much by the annual monsoon season as the arid deserts that punctuate the nation. In this volume, readers will experience a juxtaposed journey, visiting both areas that have remained untouched for centuries and areas of technological advancement that have brought the country to the forefront of innovation.
