Synopsis: This account of holy sites and mysterious ruins aims to capture the spirit of the places themselves. It explains their myths and legends and shows their continuing importance down the ages. Part One examines over 100 key sites and shows how they came to be regarded as sacred and their subsequent history. The sites are divided geographically into sections, such as Africa and the Middle East, Europe and Australia, and the Pacific. Each of these areas is introduced by a hand-drawn map showing all of the sites described and other areas of interest, such as ancient burial grounds, temples and natural sites. Part Two is a map-based gazetteer of over 1000 sacred sites. The sites are plotted over 20 maps, which are then followed by listings giving information about each holy place. The maps show the location of each site and the period in which it was built or used.

From Booklist: At first glance, this book is very similar to The Atlas of Sacred Places [RBB N 15 94], though that book covered only 33 sites and this new one treats 100 sites around the world, ranging from Ur to Machu Picchu. The one-half-to two-page entries are beautifully illustrated with color photographs. The last quarter of this volume, however, makes it more than just another pretty coffee-table book. A gazetteer plots the location of more than 1,000 sites on 20 color maps. A list keyed to the maps notes the founding date of the site, the country where it is located, and a brief note as to its importance. The entries in the first part of the book also refer to the gazetteer. A glossary and bibliography are followed by an index.

Readers interested in archaeology, religion, or travel will enjoy this attractive book. Public libraries will want to include it in their circulating collections. Sandy Whiteley
