Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Still the only full-color set of photographic dictionaries available, this magnificent series is truly in a league of its own — drawing from the famed Eyewitness blend of text and image to create reference sources unparalleled for authority and beauty. After depicting whole objects, the format "explodes" them, detailing the most minute features with labels and annotations that build to a 3,500-word specialized vocabulary. Now the Eyewitness Visual Dictionaries series tackles one of its most ambitious subjects yet — Earth — and succeeds brilliantly.

Book News Annotation:

Large (10x12"), warmly inviting, graphic elucidation of earth sciences for young people. Includes a glossary and extensive index. A great reference at a small price.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
