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?

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.
