From the Grand Canyon and Acropolis to the Caribbean’s Isla de Vieques, Heaven on Earth: The World’s Must See Destinations features more than 100 photographs along with compelling descriptions of treasured destinations around the world.
This deluxe expanded edition of LIFE’s classic book lets readers travel from home and inspires journeys to faraway places. As a must-see place doesn’t need to be experienced on location, a vivid image can satisfy even passionate travelers, the book encourages readers to choose where to travel in imagination and where to travel for real, eventually.
Trips requiring physical capabilities beyond the ordinary, such as Everest Base Camp, are not included, and all destinations attract on many levels.
Rather than organizing contents by theme or continent like other travel/photography books, LIFE divided the book in only two sections, America and the rest of the world. The consequent blend of famous world wonders, ancient sights, much-loved capitals and natural beauty offers a refreshing experience for the mind.
