The content of the book “The Amazing Far East” is divided into three major sections. The first chapter contains articles on the geography and landscape of the Far East. In the second chapter you can read about the wildlife of Yakutia, Chukotka, Primorye: plants and animals that exist and become extinct. The third chapter is devoted to the history of the development of the Far East and its natives. The history of the region is strongly connected with the history of all of Russia and neighboring countries. A special role in the development and protection of the Russian Far East was played by heroes-sailors, the final essays of this book are dedicated to them. Students and teachers of Kodinsk got acquainted with the summary of the book, divided into two teams and took part in a quiz, which was based on knowledge of the Far East. The winners of the quiz will be the first readers of the new book.
