9780792276692: National Geographic Countries of the World: Mexico

Join National Geographic's quest to find the heart and soul of Mexico.

Journey through a land of incredible biodiversity: from the Rio Grande to the Sierra Madre. Visit Mexico City, the vast metropolis built on an ancient lakebed. Study the country's history of earthquakes and volcanoes and its current struggles to protect animal habitats.

Explore Mexico's history as the center of the Olmec, Maya and Aztec civilizations in Beth Gruber's lively text. Learn how Mexico's borders once extended north to southern Wyoming, west to California, and east to Louisiana. Witness the cultural and political aftereffects of Spanish Catholicism and discover how the hacienda system of agriculture led to revolution.

The author also explains the importance of family and traditions in Mexican culture and the country's rich artistic heritage.

Finally, readers will come to understand the disappointments of the Revolution, the limits of the single-party system, social inequalities, the economy, emigration to the United States, and the effects of the tourist boom on the environment.

National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources.

About the Author:

Beth Gruber is a graduate of the New York University School of Journalism. She has worked in children's publishing for almost 20 years as an author, editor, and reviewer of books for young readers. Ms. Gruber is also the author of National Geographic Investigates: Ancient Inca.

From Booklist:

From the Countries of the World series, this volume introduces Mexico's geography, history, wildlife, culture, and government. The many excellent color photos and maps are a striking feature of the series. On a typical double-page spread, more space is given to graphic features than to text. Although the introductory-survey format and the great visual content make this a good choice for middle-school libraries, many students at this level will find the text challenging to read. Back matter includes a glossary, a time line of Mexican history, and lists of Web sites related to the text. The appended lists of books and articles emphasize the publisher's own products. Nine of the 23 books listed are from the National Geographic Society, and all 26 articles are from National Geographic . That bias aside, this will be a useful addition to many libraries.
