Abstract:

The subcontinent of West Africa is a vast area of land which includes the countries of Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, C te d Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Togo. The region is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the south, and the Sahara desert to the north. The eastern border is less precise cutting across an area from Mount Cameroon to Lake Chad. This book provides the reader with a fascinating insight into the region of West Africa country-by-country, examining the customs, history, geography, and natural world.Each title in this series includes a map of the countries in each volume, color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader s comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there.
