Fiction in Geography

The HIAS geography inspector put me onto using fiction in lessons. Authors of novels can describe and explain geographical concepts, processes and places better than I ever could hope to. The new Terry Pratchett book Nation is linked to a geographical issue. Can you spot what it is from the blurb?

‘And then the wave comes – a huge wave, dragging black night behind it….’

‘The village gone. The Nation as it was has gone…’

Taken from ‘Nation’ by Terry Pratchett 2008 ISBN 978-0-385-61370-5
