About the Author:

Michael Woods is a science and medical journalist in Washington, D. C., who has won many national writing awards. He and his wife, Mary B. Woods, write together. Their previous books include the eight-volume Ancient Technology series, the Disasters Up Close series, and the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World series. The Woodses have four children. When not writing, reading, or enjoying their two grandchildren, the Woodses travel to gather material for future books.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4–7—The writing in these volumes flows, and the information and definitions are easily accessible. The full-color photographs fill the eye with their detail and color as they show the expanse of each area. How these wonders were formed is effortlessly described and often depicted. The aerial view of the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon is a great look at the way a river erodes land. Many entries include historical information and illustrations about the people who have lived near or discovered these wonders. The ancient Egyptians and the British explorer John Speke are included in the Nile River entry (Africa), and Central and South America mentions U.S. pilot James Angel for whom Angel Falls in Venezuela is named and the Pemón people, who have lived in the region for centuries and named the mountain Auyantepui, meaning "Devil's Mountain." The photographs can be exciting—a parachuting jumper leaping from the top of Angel Falls—or shocking—a strip of Amazon rain forest surrounded by bare red soil—but they are always attention-getting. A time line lists events related to each wonder, and readers are invited to select their own Eighth Wonder by using the list of books and Web sites included in the further reading. Great for reports and armchair traveling.—Frances E. Millhouser, formerly at Chantilly Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA
