Robert W. ChristophersonIt’s a TAA tradition: Geographer Robert W. Christopherson opens each annual TAA conference with a “geo-primer,” a one-hour crash course on geography and “place.” For this year’s visit to San Antonio, the award-winning geography textbook author explored the city as a point of convergence in geography and history, from the physical setting in the southern Great Plains to the challenges to settlement posed by dryness and vast distances.
