Description
With attention primarily to the United States and secondarily to Canada and Mexico. North America is examined from three different points of view: its physical character, the human societies occupying it, and the distinctive sub-regions of which it is comprised. The physical geography emphasizes geomorphology and climatology whereas the human geography stresses political and economic characteristics. The study of sub-regions identifies locally distinctive attitudes, values, and cultural practices.
