Frommer's 500 Places to See Before They DisappearBook - 2009-
Describes rare cultural, historic, and natural places before they are irrevocably altered or even gone forever. Includes one-of-a-kind landscapes, fragile ecosystems, rare bird habitats, places to see the last remaining species of big game in the wild, cityscapes in peril, vanishing cultural kitsch, petroglyphs, and other thoughtfully chosen treasures that will inspire and enlighten travelers of all ages. Each entry explains why it has been included, gives its history, the nature of the threat against it, brief practical information on how to visit, and what visitors can to do protect it.
