"Of all the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, only one has withstood the ravages of time and plunder: the Pyramids. But Lowell Thomas's exciting new book doesn't deal with the tourist attractions of antiquity; this is a thrilling and colorful magic-carpet journey to the wonders of the world today - not merely seven, but sevenfold.
This quest for modern wonders visits five continents - from Mount Olympus to the Empire State Building, from the falls of Iguiza to the giant redwoods of the Pacific West, from Fuji Yama to Vesuvius. He includes some fascinating side lights and human-interest notes, and it is these looks at the past, the asides and sometimes almost irrelevant tales that add glamour and excitement to this wonderful book."
