Description
Davis, author of the bestselling, nationally acclaimed Don't Know Much About History, turns his inimitable wit and wide-ranging knowledge to the subject of geography, proving once and for all that there is a lot more to it than labeling countries on a map. Along the way he tackles such questions as Where was the Garden of Eden?; Who killed the Dead Sea?; and What's so bad about the Badlands? Maps and illustrations.

Don't Know Much About Geography by New York Times bestselling author Kenneth C. Davis is a fascinating and fun exploration of our planet.

Geography is the hub from which other disciplines radiate: meteorology, ecology, geology, oceanography, demographics, cartography, agricultural studies, economics, and political science.

In addition to presenting geographical trivia that'll impress your friends, Davis explores 21st-century topics of global concern, including the role of the Internet and technology in transforming the lives of people around the world, how so-called developing nations develop, sustainability, and the debates over climate change and evolutionary science.

This completely revised and updated version of Don't Know Much About Geography is an entertaining and illuminating grand tour of planet Earth.
