Excerpt from A History of the United States Men who live in warm climates are unlike the dwell ers in cold or in temperate ones. The occupations of men who live among the mountains differ from those on the plains; those of seafaring folk from those who live inland. A Norwegian, whose country is pierced by many and deep fjords or bays, becomes a sailor. A Rus sian or a North German, with his large extent of inland country, gets his living from the soil; he must cultivate such crops as Will grow where the winters are long and cold, and the summers are short. On the other hand, the Italian and the Spaniard, Whose Winters are short and mild, and whose summers are long and often hot, may cultivate the vine, the orange, the olive, and such crops as cannot be grown in cold climates. A warm climate encourages indolence. Where wants are few and nature supplies an abundance there is little stimulus to exertion. In the coldest regions the difficulty of supporting life is great; the summers are too short for crops to mature. Extremes of heat and cold hinder man's development.
