The world abounds in places that are wreathed in wonder and shrouded in mystery. Some were sculpted by the awesome forces of nature, while others are dramatic expressions of the human spirit. This extensively-illustrated book examines more than 300 such places around the world, including Stonehenge, the Badlands of South Dakota, Shangri-La, Easter Island, the Grand Canyon, Tibet's Potala Palace, and Mount Kilimanjaro, and discusses topics such as how they were created, who discovered them, why they evoke such feelings of awe and wonder, and - in some cases - whether they do in fact exist.
