This title is suitable for ages 9 to 10 years. Egypt is a land of timeless monuments and artifacts. It is also a land marked by the changes brought by the modern world; where camel drivers talk on cell phones and ancient tombs are moved to make way for modern dam building projects. With over 50 per cent new photographs, the revised "Egypt - The Land" addresses the problems of pollution, global warming, and erosion on the land and the ancient monuments of Egypt. Topics include: the Nile River; farming in an arid land; Egypt's cities and villages; the country's challenges such as efforts to feed a growing population, and protect and restore the ancient treasures.
