Summary

This book brings together a complete range of information on the cultural and natural history of Central America, the slim geographical bridge that separates two continents and two vast tropical oceans. Chapters by leading authorities discuss geological origins, differences between the surrounding oceans, the importance of natural corridors, the history of native people and colonizers from pre-Columbian to modern times, and crucial current conservation issues.
