Comments about National Geographic Book of Peoples of the World:

An over all decent book on the peoples of the world. Not as in depth and comprehensive as I had hoped. There are a few people that aren't mentioned that I had hoped to learn more about, but otherwise very informative. It's a good book for somebody that is just beginning to explore the cultures of the world.

    "Out of a windless August night
    A luna moth in ghostly light
    Beat softly on my window screen
    Tick-tick-ticking-all silver green.
    She whispered secrets in my ear—
    I am but a stranger here.
    The stars are scrawled across the sky/By ghostwriters, the Moon and I.
    You will not see me here tonight—/I have a thousand stars to write.”
