Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


This book brings you the hole-in-the wall gems that you'd never stumble onto on your own, but which the cameras did. Just as you thought the world had been fully explored: here are the most amazing sights on planet earth that no guidebook takes you near.

This selection of the weirdest and most unusual sights includes: The Plug Holes in the Mediterranean; Arizona's Boneyard; The White Snake of Baja; Australia's Extraordinary Flying Car; The Hole in the Coast of Mexico; and the Face of Jesus Found in the Sand Dune.

Extraordinary natural formations, offbeat manmade marvels, and the simply uncategorizable; all are glitches in the matrix of how we expect to see the world. The true explanation for each, where known, is featured in this wonderful and unusual guide.
