This book is a journey through the treasures that the five continents offer to the travel enthusiasts, or to whoever is capable of opening their eyes in amazement when faced with beauty. The aim is to present readers with the most beautiful images of the world, like as many windows open onto the Earth. The works of humankind and natural beauty will alternate in this extraordinary journey: from a train or aeroplane window, or from a ship's porthole, we shall see Mount Fitz Roy, the Vatnajokull glacier and the geysers of Yellowstone, the waterfalls of Iguazu and the islands of Polynesia, the Great Barrier Reef and the Skeleton Coast; as well as the giants of Easter Island, the Mexican pyramids and those at Giza, the Terracotta Army and the great cities of the ancient times. This book, then, is a collection of extraordinary photographic accounts, which allow us to admire the various perspectives, shots and overall views of eighty wonders chosen from our planet. Interesting explanatory texts introduce every chapter, each of which will focus on one place. Brief captions will help the Reader to identify the places photographed.
