What are the wonders of the world? The Grand Canyon? The Hoover Dam? The Great Pyramid of Giza - the only one of the seven wonders of the ancient world that survives today? Many lists of the wonders of the world have been compiled since ancient times, but they all have one thing in common: they fill us with awe. Wonders of the World is a collection of more than 140 natural and man-made wonders from around the globe: from spectacular natural wonders such as the Sahara Desert, Victoria Falls, Banff National Park, Death Valley, the Amazon River and Mount Fuji to amazing feats of engineering such as the Great Wall of China, the Burj Khalifa, the Parthenon, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Panama Canal, Machu Picchu and Moai on Easter Island. The book explains the fascinating facts and stories behind these extraordinary places. For example, did you know that the Dead Sea is 9.6 times saltier than the ocean? That the Great Barrier Reef supports 2195 plant species? Or that the Millau Viaduct in France is the tallest bridge in the world at 343m (1125ft)? How about that the Potala Palace in Tibet, where the Dalai Lama lived, has more than 1000 rooms and around 10,000 shrines? Wonders of the World is a collection of breathtaking places from around the world.
