The variety of poems, along with the absolutely breath-taking photos used to illustrate them, make this book a pleasure to read, even if you don’t usually enjoy poetry.

This book has beautiful photos with beautiful poetry. I have never considered my self a lover of poetry, but I couldn't seem to stop reading these. Both of my boys, ages 11 and 9 have enjoyed our evenings reading the poems and looking at the stunning photos. I liked it so much I bought it!

Like taking a fantastic journey to the best corners of the world. The book was educational, beautifully full of photos one might stare in awe for several minutes, then review again. Lovely yet some obscure poems.
A book to share with children, elders and everyone in between.
I highly recommend this book!
