Brazil - The Earth Greenery
by Alberto Taliani
White Star
ISBN 88-544-0047-5
Published December 2006 - Hardcover - 128 pages - $9.95

Brazil is another exotic country of exquisite contrasts.  This huge South American country has much to offer the thirsty tourist.  From the famed Sugar Loaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro, to the packed beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, to the bustling cities, the many colorful carnivals and religious festivals, the mighty Amazon River and the many waterfalls, the rainforests, modern architecture, extreme poverty, the Christ the Redeemer statue, and so much more.  Brazil's neighbors include Venezuela, Peru, Suriname, Guyana, French Gaiana, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay.  Portuguese is the national language of Brazil and many African slaves were brought to this country by the Portuguese which is why there are references to the Motherland in religion and festivals.  Other groups who make up this diverse country are the Kamaiura Indians, Yanomami Tribe, Kayapo Tribe, the Arara, and more.  Samba, soccer, coffee, jaguars, boa constrictors, anacondas, macaws, Pele, Ayrton Senna, Gisele Bündchen, Emerson Fittipaldi, Hector Babenco, and an ecosystem essential to the health of the planet are just some of the things associated with Brazil.  The mighty rainforests sustain life on earth and have to be protected against the advance of civilization and man's greed.  This beautifully illustrated book captures most of what makes up Brazil.  Brazil is the fifth largest country on earth.
Conclusion - A very alluring destination for those who crave diversity.
