Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Photographer Davey picks 40 places on nearly every travel adventurer's wish list and proves each one is worth the work to get there. Along with what one would expect, such as Angkor Wat, Giverny, Venice, and the Great Barrier Reef, Davey and his co-photographer Marc Schlossman also offer such finds as Dead Vlei, Drakensburg, the Iguassu Falls and the Ghats. Along with the color photographs of stunning geological features and miraculous buildings, Davey provides a running commentary on the societies that lived, and still do, in their shadows.
