The land of Ghana

Ghana is a tropical country which means that it is
always warm here and sometimes very hot. According
to the time of the year the winds blowing across our
country come from different directions. When the
winds come across the coast from the sea, they bring
plenty of water and drop heavy rain on the land. This
is when we have our rainy season. When the winds
blow from the north, they are hot and dry and bring plenty of
dust and sand. This is when we have our dry
season, which we call Harmattan.

Our land is much drier and hotter in the north.
Here the land is mainly flat and, because there is little
of our country is cooler and the rain is very heavy for
about four months of the year. Because of this we find
many large trees and thick forests here. There are also
some areas of high ground. The coastal area of our
country is very flat. Here there are many lagoons and
river estuaries which often flood during the rainy
season. Around Accra there is an area of flat dry land
which looks like the land of northern Ghana.

The history of a country is about the lives of
the peoples and how they have become what they are
