Farming once dominated the landscape of France for generations but now the landscape is changing. Giant farms have been created from smaller ones. In remoter, less fertile areas, farmers have abandoned the land altogether. Towns and cities are growing, with suburbs sprawling out into the countryside. In the past, France was famous for its food; in future, it may be more famous for its engineering and its high-tech industries. Meet the people of France and discover the diversity of their lives, from the organic-wine producer to the engineering student who dreams of designing a space station on Mars. This work includes maps and graphic panels showing statistics and fact boxes about size, flag, population, religion, currency and language.
