Life Heaven on Earth, the World's Must-See Destinations: An Expanded Edition of Life's Classic Book

Life Heaven on Earth, the World's Must-See Destinations: An Expanded Edition of Life's Classic Book Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When we at LIFE Books first published Heaven on Earth several years ago, the public responded as if this was the ultimate bucket list of beauty and awe. From the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx to the mysteries of Easter Island and Stonehenge, the editors of LIFE drew on the world's fi nest photography to reveal why you must include these truly special places in your life's itinerary. Drink in the kaleidoscope that is Australia's Great Barrier Reef and gaze at the majesty of Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro, we urged. Sample the sophisticated splendor of the Tuileries Gardens in Paris and the sun-baked wonders of the fortress city of the Andes, Machu Picchu. And, of course, the treasures of America were not forgotten, such as the gasp-inducing Grand Canyon and the serene Atlantic beauty of Nantucket Island. Our classic book is back, but with more. We have now included 16 pages of exotics-secrets- beyond the famous and fabulous places you must see. We have once again spanned the globe, and once again solicited the world's best possibilities. Can you guess the newest entries? We can promise one thing: They are as heavenly as the original 100, as heavenly as anything on earth.

Synopsis:

The editors of LIFE have called upon their considerable experience to honor 100 of the most fascinating, the most splendid, the most unforgettable of all destinations. This is a volume designed to be a treasured collector's edition.
