Book Description: Reader's Digest, 1993. 460pp quarto. Color photo hardback. Many fine color photo plates and illustrations throughout.

A reasonable coffee table book, with the usual stunning pictures of natural wonders. There's nothing particularly remarkable, at least not compared with what you might get in a more recent book, but it's fun to flip through. I wish there had been more information about the places mentioned, as well

as directions for further information.

Recommendation: Pick it up if it's cheap, or just flip through and see if any of the photos particularly grip you.

A book full of wonderful, awe-inspiring photographs of some of nature's beauties. From Antarctica to Australia, from Asia to the Americas, this book explores all sorts of interesting places.

This is a compilation of great writers and more than 125 spectacular color photographs. The work bears witness to the sacred beauty of nature, and the traces made by wind and water, fire and ice. From Iceland's glaciated and active volcanoes, to a journey over 5000 miles up the rift valley system

from Zambezi to the Dead Sea. Magical mazes in the Caves, and lively lovely Barrier Reef. (The world is sacred, and now only human appreciation can save it from human defilement.)
