Liberia, founded by freed American slaves in 1847, has suffered for more than a decade from a civil war that has separated families, created refugees, and destroyed the country's economy. This book explores Liberia's history, resources, culture, and future challenges.
"The book details the country's climate, geography, agriculture, industry, daily life in both rural and urban areas, and arts and culture. The book features maps, black-and-white photographs, and special boxes...The book's final pages offer a set of facts-at-a-glance, a detailed chronology, an annotated bibliography including works for both children and adults, an annotated list of works consulted (including web sites), and an index."
