This newly revised book provides a basic introduction to contemporary Iran—the land that was ancient Persia. With more than 45 full-color pictures, this book takes readers on a virtual walk through the deserts and oases, mountains and rivers, and the archeological sites of Iran. Imagine life in this land of earthquakes, sand storms, and extreme weather, from burning hot deserts to the humid shores of the Caspian Sea to freezing cold mountains. And while you learn about its geography, climate, agriculture, exports, and wildlife, also take a peek into the changing face of Iran, its cities, and its people.
