New student
atlas released

Cartoon geckos and
mynah birds guide
readers through pages

Hot on the heels of their award-winning "Atlas of Hawai'i," published by the University of Hawaii Press, geographers James O. Juvik, Thomas R. Paradise and Sonia P. Juvik have created a scaled-down "Student Atlas of Hawai'i" for textbook publisher Bess Press.

The $8.95 paperback book features -- naturally -- lots of colorful maps on its 48 pages. It also contains lots of up-to-date data and charts, and presents the information in an easy-to-digest form. The data includes information on island topography, population, symbols and emblems, ecosytems involving plants and animals, and population figures.

A couple of cartoon geckos and mynah birds are used as guides to the materials.

The authors all teach at the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at the University of Hawai'i at Hilo. A Hawaiian-language edition of the book is due out shortly as well.
