Description

A breathtaking journey, taking in the most incredible natural wonders of the world, 1001 Natural Wonders is the definitive guide to the stunning features of nature. Some places are in the remote wilderness, others just a bus ride from town, but whatever they are and wherever they are, they are sure to astonish. With the help of the world's leading explorers - past and present - we take you on a circumnavigation of the globe, journeying from hot deserts to the icy poles, across grasslands and steppe, lakes and rivers, and from mountain tops to the ocean depths. Each stopover is chosen for its grandeur and sheer natural beauty. Ordered by continent and country, illustrated with stunning photographs from the world's leading photographers, and clearly located on specially commissioned maps, each entry is packed with information on how each natural wonder was created, where to find it and how to get there. Making 1001 Natural Wonders the most detailed and comprehensive guide if its kind. For the would-be explorer, the dedicated tourist, the student, and the downright inquisitive, this is a valuable guide to the planet's priceless resources.
