VenezuelaBook - 2009
When Spanish explorers arrived on the coast of South America, they found that natives had built their homes on stilts among the swampy shore of Lake Maracaibo. Because this reminded the Europeans of the city of Venice, they named the region Venezuela (Little Venice). This illustrated book is part of the South America Today series.
