Wild Maps for Curious Minds

We rated this book:


For those who are visual thinkers or are just curious critters, this is the kind of book that will appeal to you. With a minimum of words but a host of maps and a score of colors to outline responses to a multitude of intriguing questions, the reader can graphically read the answers to the posed queries.

Ranging from topics going back to ancient history out to current global changes, many among the hundreds of varied subjects covered will arouse curiosity. Find the most remote place on our planet, follow the rise and fall of European forests across time, or look at how deep the Earth is, or perhaps trace the advance of farming across the continents as food production increased.

Look at an outline of all the landlocked countries, or check out those nations whose flags portray a dragon, question which areas of the world are most at risk from natural disasters, or just look for the country that has the most cat lovers.

Combining both serious and amusing explorations of curious aspects of this world using maps as the focus, this global perspective may intrigue the page-turner-type reader.
