In a useful reference on the geography of northern America, students can find information about the economic, social, and political influences that affect the world around them. On both a local and global level, Northern America explores the vast cultural realm of the United States and Canada in relation to its environmental diversity and abundance of resource wealth. Although the region has been less ravaged by conflict than any other area of comparable size in the world, northern America is no stranger to human strife. With a large number of people of varied racial and cultural backgrounds living together in one area, Northern America's label as the world's "melting pot" has never been more true. Some of the characteristics that help define northern America as a significant part of geographical history, and are covered in this volume, include the allowance of individual freedoms and social mobility, a good health care system, long-life expectancy, and widespread economic prosperity. In this one volume reference, students and teachers of geography will come to know northern America, from the inside out.
