About the book:

Commandeer the family armchair and prepare for an incredibly cheap yet oddly fulfilling world tour with The Handy Geography Answer Book. Handy Geography answers 1,000 common and intriguing questions about the natural features of the world and the ever-changing mark humans make on our planet. It provides answers to such questions as, Who owns the oceans? Which state has the most lakes? Who was the explorer honored as the Grand Imperial Eunuch (funny how these things never translate directly) by the Emperor of China? And how did a lake kill more than 2,000 people? Was revenge the motive? With up-to-date maps and information on nations and states, Handy Geography is the source to turn to when having the "Name That African Country" contest at the water cooler. And kids saddled with geography homework or who just want to know more about the world have a great source to turn to, because it's written by a real geography teacher, only he's not boring. Really. Skillfully combining entertainment and information, Handy Geography covers common trivia questions---highest, tallest, deepest, hottest, shortest, longest, oldest, newest, and, of course, most improved. It also explores the impact of terrain on the location of countries and cities and geography's influence on language, religion, architecture, migration, and population. Feel the excitement.
