'The vanishing places featured in this atlas, from
archaeological sites to encroached ecosystems, all compel... A
reminder of earthly evanescence - and of the urgency to preserve
what we can of what remains.'
* Nature magazine *
'The temporal sweep of the book is immense... very nicely produced with alluring photographs and lovely colour maps... a great Christmas gift for budding explorer and armchair traveller alike.' * Hackney Citizen *
