Incredible Earth! Nature is truly as ferocious as it is magnificent…We will dive deep into dark oceans; fly over beautiful yet dangerous lakes; stand in awe of landscapes that appear more alien than familiar; marvel at miraculous sculptures created in rock, ice, sand, and salt; and peer into volcanic craters that bubble like witches’ cauldrons!
$12.95 is a reasonable price to pay to go around the world. I stumbled upon this glossy, bright hardback at the University of New Mexico book store in Albuquerque. It was the only copy and I immediately bought it. The enormous, up-close-and- personal pictures take you on a whirlwind trip. See Mount Pinatubo, the Phillipine volcano, majestically exploding! 120 million red crabs on Australia’s Christmas Island! A melting iceberg that looks like a giant dining room table! Once I win the lottery (or find a kind and generous benefactor,) I will use this as a travel guide.
