Produced by the worlds greatest photographers, these images allow us to see the views, patterns, lights, and colors of an entire planet at a single glance.Readers embark on a spectacular aerial trip where they see the worlds treasures from rarely achieved vantage points-made possible through the art and daring of the worlds best photographers. A series of breath taking images come into view: the deep canyons of North America, the dense forests of South America, the dizzying peaks of the Himalayas and the Alps, the lunar colors of the great deserts, as well as the pyramids, the Great Wall of China, prehistoric villages, medieval towns of Europe, and the huge metropolises of the third millennium. A short description introduces each chapter dedicated to a particular aspect of the Earth, and the photos are accompanied by identifying captions.
