While recognizing their country's problems, the people of Brazil also benefit from a spirit of improvisation and adaptation that allows them to cope with their many challenges. The lovely full-colored photography enhances the interesting facts throughout the book. Pictures of the land masses, forest and rivers, and the Amazon Rainforest, give a flavor of the landscape. There are historical accounts of past and present rulers and their influence on the Brazilian government. The foods of Brazil sound delightful and there's even a recipe for a very Brazilian bean dish. Enjoy the food and enjoy the book!
