"This is a thrilling and colorful up-to-the-minute 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 Iguazu to the giant redwoods of the Pacific West, from Fuji Yama to Vesuvius. Lowell Thomas has been to all parts of the world many times and has an explorer’s interest - and curiosity - in people and places. In his description of each place he visits 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 his wonderful book."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
