About half of the planets 7 billion people live in close proximity to an ocean.

The countries of North America have always had plentiful natural resources. But the exploitation of these resources comes at a cost, and in certain cases, some have wondered if that cost is too high. North American Natural Resources explores all facets of this vital aspect of our economy. Readers will investigate the natural history, human use, technology, environmental impact, and economic significance of the most significant resources on the continent. Each title in this series contains color photos, a full-page map, and back matter including: an index, further reading lists for books and internet resources, and a series glossary.

Key Icons are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions.

Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional info
