Paterson's geography of the United States and Canada has held its reputation as one of the best texts in regional geography through eight editions. It is noted for its breadth of view, analytic approach and readability. The new edition will retain the basic structure of the previous one, but more emphasis will be placed on urban development and environmental problems--without ignoring the importance of the more sparsely populated areas. Paterson examines the glaciation, climate, and soils of North America, before profiling its people and cities. He looks at governmental use of land and water resources, as well as agriculture and industry. After analyzing transportation methods, Paterson concentrates on specific regions: New England, the Canadian heartland, and Appalachia. He devotes further chapters to California, Hawaii, and the Spanish and Indian Southwest. Paterson studies every region of the continent in detail. A work of great breadth and scholarship, Paterson's book will benefit all undergraduate students of geography.
