PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY, Eleventh Edition, uses the combined expertise of three accomplished and respected geographers to show not only what constitutes physical geography but also the interrelationships between people and Earth’s natural environment. The well-written text and excellent illustrations emphasize three essential themes to demonstrate the major roles of the discipline -- Geography as Physical Science, Geography as Spatial Science, and Geography as Environmental Science. With a strong focus on processes and the interrelationships among Earth’s systems, this text guides students to an understanding and appreciation of how the various natural systems function and of how humans are an integral component of physical geography. Historically, this was the first Physical Geography textbook to take an environmental sustainability approach, and the authors continue to address the theme of human interactions with the environment.

This primary text, designed for undergraduate courses, provides a modern approach to the fundamentals of physical geography by linking process, form, and effect. The authors explore the natural world as a series of systems and consider the relationship between the different components of each. They examine, in turn, the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere, providing a thorough discussion of their composition and the ways in which their interaction forms our global environment. Throughout, the authors demonstrate the role of humanity in influencing the physical environment and the ways in which we are affected by our surroundings. Clearly written and lavishly illustrated with maps, drawings, photographs, and charts, Fundamentals of Physical Geography is an ideal text.

The Physical Geography of South America, the eighth volume in the Oxford Regional Environments series, presents an enduring statement on the physical and biogeographic conditions of this remarkable continent and their relationships to human activity. It fills a void in recent environmental literature by assembling a team of specialists from within and beyond South America in order to provide an integrated, cross-disciplinary body of knowledge about this mostly tropical continent, together with its high mountains and temperate southern cone. The authors systematically cover the main components of the South American environment - tectonism, climate, glaciation, natural landscape changes, rivers, vegetation, animals, and soils. The book then presents more specific treatments of regions with special attributes from the tropical forests of the Amazon basin to the Atacama Desert and Patagonian steppe, and from the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Pacific coasts to the high Andes. Additionally, the continents environments are given a human face by evaluating the roles played by people over time, from pre-European and European colonial impacts to the effects of modern agriculture and urbanization, and from interactions with El Ni?o events to prognoses for the future environments of the continent.

I am delighted to present TUMACÁCORI GOLD, a fiction adventure novel of good verses evil, packed with factual history, mystery, suspense and a touch of romance. Based on the uncanny discovery of a whirlpool vortex on the Colorado River which is rapidly depleting Arizona's precious life-sustaining water, Logan Price, a desert biologist and ghost town adventurer, travels deep into the mystifying labyrinth of the Grand Canyon to locate and destroy the threatening anomaly before the state is turned into another Sahara Desert. Logan's meticulous investigation of the diminishing whitewater rapids unexpectedly leads him to an enchanted, romantic encounter with a beautiful Indian princess, the shocking discovery of a lost, ancient civilization that time has forgotten, a hair-raising journey into a perilous world that lies far beyond the confines of reality, and finally, the amazing discovery of an enormous mountain of gold of untold worth, know as the lost Tumacacori gold. But as Logan unearths the vast fortune in gold, the heroic desert biologist suddenly realizes that the gold isn't the only treasure that lies beneath the dry and cavernous desert as he miraculously turns the desiccated Arizona desert into a garden of Eden.
