A small nation located along West Africa’s Atlantic coast, Liberia was established in the 1820s as a colony for former slaves and other free blacks living in the United States. Readers will discover how this came to be, how the colony became an independent nation, and how it changed over time. They will also explore the country’s beautiful geography, sample some of its diverse native wildlife, and find out how its people live today.
