Mapping a Changing World introduces young readers to a host of wonderful - and sometimes whimsical - attempts to capture our world on a flat surface. Beginning with an ancient Babylonian map etched on a clay tablet and ending with a radar image of a Russian volcano taken from the space shuttle Endeavour, author Yvette La Pierre takes young readers on a trip around the globe and through time. Lively anecdotes and more than fifty full-color pictures of past and present maps help readers discover how and why maps have changed over the years and what they reveal about the people who made and used them.
