(Midwest Book Review)

"Great Adventures is a handsome 320-page coffee-table book, filled to bursting with stunning photographs of oceans, deserts, ancient cities, and,especially, perilous mountain overhangs, beneath which there always looms a bottomless abyss. The two-page opening spread of a craggy overlook in the French Alps will leave acrophobics reeling in panic." (Perceptive Travel)

The reader will be enticed to hike, dive, bikeand climb; above the earth, below the oceans, and on top of mountains. This is truly a candy box of adventures of a lifetime. Every endorphin seeking traveler will love this book." (Wicked Good Travel Tips 2012-12-04)
