Synopsis

Honduras by Roger Dendinger

Located in Central America, between Guatemala and Nicaragua, Honduras gained its independence from Spain in 1821. The majority of the country is mountainous, and its climate is subtropical. In 1998, Hurricane Mitch devastated the country, killing more than 5,600 people, leaving tens of thousands missing or homeless, and causing billions of dollars' worth of damage. Honduras is also one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, with one of the highest unemployment rates in the world. Honduras is an accessible, highly illustrated resource that explores the people, culture, history, geography, environment, economy, and government of this struggling nation.

Reviews

New arrivals to the expanding Modern World Nations series should not be missed...assure readers plenty of material suitable for in-depth reports, yet a lively enough style to lend to browsing. All are lasting, ongoing recommendations for librarians seeking to build long-term, quality collections.
