America: the Land and the People
美国:国土和人民


The United States is a varied land --- of forests, deserts, mountains, high flat lands and fertile plains. Almost every kind of climate may be found, but the country lies mostly in the temperate zone. 

美国的土地类型多种多样,有森林、沙漠、山地、高原和肥沃的平原。美国拥有近乎所有的气候,但以温带气候为主。


Including the states of Alaska and Hawaii, the United States covers an area of 9 million square kilometers. The continental United States stretches 4,500 kilometers from the Atlantic Ocean on the east to the Pacific Ocean on the west. It borders Canada on the north, and reaches south to Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico.

美国拥有包括阿拉斯加州和夏威夷州在内的九百万平方公里的土地。大陆美国东西延展四千五百公里,东临大西洋,西临太平洋。它在北面与加拿大接壤,在南面与墨西哥以及墨西哥湾相邻。


A jet plane crosses the continental United States from east to west in about five hours. Taking off from an Atlantic coast airport, the plane is soon flying over the gentle slopes of the Appalachian Mountains. 

一架喷气式飞机在大约五小时的时间内可以从东往西飞越大陆美国。这架飞机从位于大西洋海岸的机场起飞,很快就会飞行在阿巴拉契亚山脉平缓的山坡上空。


Then, for hundreds of kilometers it crosses the fertile fields of the farm belt of the great Middle West. To the north, on clear days passengers may see the five Great Lakes located between the United States and Canada.

在飞行过几百公里之后,它将飞越大中西部农业区丰饶的田野。向北望去,若天气晴朗,乘客们可以看到位于美国和加拿大交界处的五大湖。


Continuing into the West, the plane flies over vast prairies and rough cattle-grazing country. Soon the snow-topped Rocky Mountains appear in the distance. 

继续西进,飞机将飞过广阔的大草原和崎岖的牧区。不久,峰峦积雪的落基山脉就会在远处出现。


After crossing these high ranges, the plane can almost glide down into the rich valleys of California and, finally, to a landing not far from the beaches of the Pacific Ocean.

在飞越这片高大的山脉之后,飞机就差不多可以沿着加利福尼亚州富饶的山谷向下滑行,最终在距太平洋海滩不远处的机场降落。
