What are the wonders of the world today? The Grand Canyon? The Hoover Dam? The Great Pyramid of Giza, the only one of the seven wonders of the ancient world that survives today? From the ancient world to the present day, from the natural world to man-made accomplishments, Wonders of the World explores the most outstanding places around the globe. From waterfalls to deserts, from bridges to opera houses, from natural fires that never stop burning to the Earth's largest man-made holes, the book explains the fascinating stories about extraordinary places, both famous and little-known. Arranged by continent, the book includes natural features such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Northern Lights and Niagara Falls, as well as human creations like Stonehenge, Rome's Colosseum, Chartres Cathedral, Angkor Wat and the Empire State Building. Presented in a landscape format, Wonders of the World is a stunning collection of 200 images.
