    I've got this book on my christmas shopping list for my son. He is the International thinker in the family. What a perfect Christmas present!! This extraordinary book takes readers on a remarkable journey to the world's most extraordinary and endangered locations. Since 1972, sites of natural, historic, and cultural significance have been designated as World Heritage sites by UNESCO. Although this designation offers some protection, these sites are still at risk today from both natural and man-made causes, such as earthquakes in Peru, civil strife in the Congo, and unsustainable tourism in Cambodia. Discover the dramatic stories behind 101 of the most remarkable and endangered sites from every corner of the world, including: The Great Wall of China; Serengeti; London; Machu Picchu; Petra; Angkor; Prague; Minaret of Jam; Kilimanjaro; Great Barrier Reef; and more. A portion of all proceeds from this book will go to support the conservation of World Heritage sites. By Alonzo C. Addison; hardcover.

    A must read -- the planet's most beautiful but also most threatened places. A great coffee table book but chock full of fascinating facts and stories about these wonders. The maps, photos and whole graphic presentation is very compelling. And a portion of sales go back to saving the sites!
