    Looking for 4th Grade Geography Book

    I am trying to recall the title of a geography book I used in 4th grade, back around 1957. All I remember is that it was based on traveling to various parts of the world and learning about people in each of those places.

    First was a plane or boat trip from New York City to Belem in Brazil,
    then a trip up the Amazon to Manaus.

    Next stage was the Belgian Congo (this was 1957).
    Then the book took us to Lake Chad.

    The next part of the journey was a long tip north to
    Hammerfest, Norway. From there we flew halfway around
    the world to Canton, China. Then on to Australia, and finally
    back to the U.S.

    Does anyone remember a 4th geography book like this?

    Thanks.

    Holy crap! Thats a long time ago even for some of the 'older' people over here. (Most of us are 15-35) I would ask at the round-table you may get better results. Good luck.

    Not too long ago for me, but I don't remember it. Ours had Pimwee, Boy of the Jungle.
