Brazil - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
1 Brazil is a country in South America. It is the largest country on that continent and the fifth largest country in the world. It covers as much territory as almost the entire continent of Europe and is just slightly smaller than the United States. Brazil borders almost every country in South America except Ecuador and Chile, and is also bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east. Brazil is the most populous country in South America.
2 The Amazon River that flows through Brazil is the longest river in the Western Hemisphere and is the second longest river in the world after the Nile River. In terms of the area it covers and the amount of water it carries, the Amazon is the largest river in the world. Another amazing feature of the Amazon River is its width--it ranges from one to thirty-five miles wide!
3 The river is named after the women-warriors of Greek mythology--Amazons. It is believed that while traveling by the river, one of the early Spanish explorers was attacked by the tribes of native people, among which were many women warriors. That is why the river was called the Amazon.
