The land and people of Venezuela

The Land and People of Venezuela: Portraits of the Nations. HarperCollins, 1991. For young readers, grades 7-12.

Selection of the New York Public Library, “Books for the Teenage.”

“This expansive overview of the history, economy, culture, politics, and geographic features of this progressive, oil-rich nation… is a fine introduction” [to Venezuela]. — Voice of Youth Advocates

“Geography, cultural life, and pre- and post-independence history are all presented clearly and intelligently. Simón Bolívar’s role in the formation of independent Venezuela is given its due, but the Great Liberator doesn’t overshadow the country’s important, if unstable, subsequent history.”
