Land is the part of the earth’s surface which is not covered with water. It refers to the realm of the earth called the “lithosphere”. It is an area of the ground that can be used for cultivation. Generally, land also refers to any country or state. Japan, for example, is called as “The land of the Rising sun.” Animals which can thrive only on land are called terrestrial animals. Land topography is of several types. Land may be desert, mountain, plain, ridge etc. Physical conditions like humidity, temperature vary from one kind of land topography to the other.
Land is the solid part of the earth unlike the hydrosphere which consists of oceans, seas and other such water bodies.
In the words of Martin Luther King, “I just want to do God's will. And he's allowed me to go to the mountain. And I've looked over, and I've seen the Promised Land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.”
