Learn about Rural Life looks at small communities in North America. The communities live far from big cities and have developed around natural resources. The everyday lives of children and adults in the communities depends on, and focuses on, these resources. Each title first looks in detail at the resource and how people in general use it. Then it locates the featured community; traces its history; and looks at many aspects of everyday life in the village or small town. Finally, each book compares this North American community with other similar communities around the world.
