Our Country and Its People: An Introductory Geographic Reader for the Fourth School Year

By: Anna Buckbee, Will S. Monroe
Published by: Harper and Brothers
Publication Date: 1911

Description

The plan of the book is simple. It brings the child face to face at once with the fundamental ideas of geography—that is, the earth as the home of man. Structure and industries which grow from it, what Nature offers to man and the use he makes of what she offers, are the keynote of the story.

From the Foreword

This book covers the eight geographical regions of the United States beginning with the New England Upland and ending with the California Valley. Our Country explains in a clear and simple way the various geological features of each region and the industries that developed as a result.
