About this book

The aim of Geographywise: Mountains is to encourage children to explore the wonders of the physical world around them – the geographical features that make our planet unique and amazing – and understand how humans use it. Towering mountains, gushing rivers, windswept deserts and jagged coastlines...each title will first look at the agents of change that form these landforms and then go on to explore the different types of environments in which they can be found, how they are used by humans, from dams to skiing resorts and how they can be conserved. Maps will show where features are found in the world and diagrams will explain formations and processes, such as how a river erodes its valley as it flows down to its mouth, a how block mountain is formed, how waves crashing the shore produce headlands and bays, and how wind scours caves in deserts.
