Have you ever wondered what a badland is? What about a gulch? Do you wonder what an isthmus is? Or a seamount? What about the difference between a plateau and a plain, or a knob and a knoll? Well, here are the answers!

This is a perfect introduction to the dramatic and fascinating face of the vast world around us. The author and artist of the best-selling MAPS & GLOBES team up again, this time to prove that geography can indeed be an adventure.

Or enter into the Beauregard-Keyes House in New Orleans where Civil War soldiers still do battle in the front hall.

Identify plants like the Machineel of Southern Florida and Central America, a tropical tree covered in succulent looking fruit full of deadly, mouth burning, throat swelling poison. Read and share ghost stories from around the globe that will make you and your friends jump. Plus DIY activities: Create your own haunting; brew up a batch of fake blood; hold you own seance.
