Description

Inspiring equal parts wonder and wanderlust, Atlas Obscura celebrates over 700 of the strangest and most curious places in the world. The second edition, revised and updated with 20% new material, reveals more hidden wonders. Among them: the Glowing Termite Mounds of Emas Brazil, the secretive FBI Spy House in Washington DC, the spooky Pirate Cemetery in Madagascar, and in Whitehorse, Canada, the The World’s Largest Weathervane.

Created by Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras (the founders of Atlas Obscura) and Ella Morton, Atlas Obscura revels in the weird, the unexpected, the overlooked, the hidden and the mysterious. Every page expands our sense of how strange and marvellous the world really is. And with its compelling descriptions, hundreds of photographs, surprising charts, maps for every region of the world, it is a book to enter anywhere, and will be as appealing to the armchair traveler as the die-hard adventurer.
