Among the endangered, high-risk locations that suffer from natural and man-made causes:
- Peru, in danger of earthquakes
- Congo, in danger of civil strife
- Cambodia, a land of unsustainable tourism
One new book, "Disappearing World" by Alonzo C. Addison (HarperCollins, 272 pages) offers readers a glimpse of 101 of these "extraordinary and endangered places." From Angkor to Venice, Machu Picchu to the Great Barrier Reef, the number of quickly fading "hot spots" grows. This hardcover, coffee-table style book chronicles each. The only thing I couldn't find was whether the paper is made with post-consumer content and printed with soy-based inks. If anyone can clarify, please post a comment!
