Area Geography:South America is has a wide variety of  geographical features

Jake Reardon's curator insight, May 5, 2014 9:47 PM

South America has an incredible physical composition. It is the most biologically diverse of all Earth's continents. In terms of natural resources South America has always been very rich. Throughout studying history i learned of how European governments practicAlly salivated over the country and invested head over heels in it. The Andes and the Amazon rainforest are also not the easiest of places to farm and to develop. It's also extremely hard to make roads to many towns in the Andes and it's hard to build roads crossing them. Same goes for the Amazon.
