By Jerald R Lovell on August 2, 2002
This book is out of print, and that's too bad. It lists over 200 places around the world, most of them natural features, that are truly amazing. Some are large, (Antarctica), some are small and very remote (Rabbitkettle Hot springs in the Northwest Territories.). While North America may have a few more items listed, even Africa has it s share, including many little known waterfalls and mountain ranges. I was a geography major in college, and I was stunned at how many of the overseas phenomena I had never even heard of before. The book is a continuing voyage of discovery.
The descriptions of each feature are factually excellent and well written. The photographs are all in color and excellent.
The maps supplied, in some, but not all, instances are clear and well drafted.
Your world will be much broader and more full once you obtain and read this excellent volume. Don't even try it all at once. Just leisurely peruse a few items each time, and your sense of wonder and beauty will grow each time you do. Very, very highly rated.

I have been a geography teacher and a librarian in two libraries. I made sure my classroom and both libraries have this book--in fact, multiple copies. The reading level makes it a resource accessible to people 14 years old and up. Whether you are looking for information like relatively well-known Angel Falls in Venezuela or discovering the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica, this book makes you wish you could visit. Add this book to your collection.

We had one of these books when I was a kid, and I remember being facinated by the beautiful pictures. I shared this one with my kids, and I was pleased to see they were just as excited as I was when I was little. So glad I came across this little gem on Amazon!

This was written in 1980. Its only shortcoming is, it needs to be twice as big - no, make that 5 times as big. More pictures of every location, longer description. Tell every writer you know: This would be a sure-fire success, simply building on this fine foundation. Note that there are 200 used copies available: people recognize the value of this, and know others will want it too. It's one of those books I believe I need two copies of, just in case something happens to one of them. I've read and re-read it more than any other book I can think of. How is it that no other writer or publisher has figured out that it is fascinating to know about these little-known natural features?

This was my favorite book as a kid. Had to buy it for nostalgia. The pictures are beautiful and travel-inspiring. I loved the picture of Mt. Fuji so much that my grandma painted a huge copy of it, which my dad had until I finally got it about 5 years ago.
