Author Morton, Eliza H. (Eliza Happy), 1855-1916.
Published Date 1901
Summary & Description Geography textbook for high school students. The author's preface: "The fundamental thought of the "new geography," briefly stated, is the unity of the earth and the joint action of the forces of nature upon it and upon one another, so that "nothing stands alone." This conception recognizes the controlling power of man's hand and mind, shows how his activities are based upon the products of the earth, explains the conditions that must exist for the profitable pursuit of the various industries, and gives reasons for the progress of civilization."
