100 days in photographs : pivotal events that changed the world by Nicholas Yapp( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a visual journey through our age. To create it, Getty Images and National Geographic identified 100 days that represent defining moments of the past 150 years, and crystallized them with photographs that evoke joy and anger, triumph and despair--including scores of rare and unpublished photographs uncovered during its creation. From the Getty Images archive, images depict major world events. National Geographic's contributions illustrate scientific, cultural, and geographical topics. Politics, war, crime, technology, achievement, fads, and fashion all figure into the life and legacy of these 100 days. Supporting the visuals are firsthand journal excerpts, photographers' on-site notes, and insightful text by photography historian Nick Yapp.--From publisher description
Visions of Earth : beauty, majesty, wonder by Susan Tyler Hitchcock( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Visions of Earth raises a curtain on the wonders of the world and thrills us with nature's opulence and humanity's splendor. Each image alone exposes a nugget of our planet's magnificence; the totality of the collection goes beyond our imagination. Turning the pages, viewers are struck by the richness of life on Earth. One photograph is more awe-inspiring than the next--chosen by veteran National Geographic Magazine photo editors to present what is visually incredible. The photographs are drawn from the popular "Visions of Earth" feature in the magazine, (rated #1 by readers), from our own storied Image Collection, and from renowned photographers throughout the world, many never-before published. Enthralling images fill the book in a gallery of stunning landscapes, fascinating people, amazing animals, and unexpected glimpses of the usual and unusual. Puffins' beaks signal breeding time in Norway and a speckled emperor moth in South Africa diverts predators with an illusion. An elephant takes a morning dip in India's Andaman Sea while Siamese crocodiles race in Thailand and surfers in Australia relish a perfect day. Monks in Bhutan run to dinner and a little girl in red stands out among white-robed women in an Indonesian mosque. Spanish youth decked in colorful, oversize papier-mâche heads celebrate a festival in Catalonia and a flower of flame blooms from a man's kerosene-filled mouth in a Sikh celebration in India. Around the globe, amazing moments are captured in time, from a spray of flash frozen petal fragments in California to a truck show of chrome-covered and gleaming neon rigs half the world away in Japan. Visions of Earth is a welcome escape from the news of natural disasters, conflict, political upheaval, and social unrest that fills our lives. The book delights our senses, ignites our emotions, and renews our optimism, showcasing the many ways that our world is a marvel to behold and a privilege to call home"--

Wild at heart : man and beast in Southern Africa by Chris Johns( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells the conservation story in a new way, describing a plan backed by Nelson Mandela for the establishment of Peace Parks throughout Africa. These parks would provide safe corridors for animal migration that cut across national borders. The book makes the point that unexpected results may come from even the most well-meaning conservation efforts: helping save one animal can bring threats to another. Wild at Heart tells its story by weaving together photographs and anecdotal text, revealing the tangled relationships between animals, people, and geography. The authors show the various collisions that result from isolated viewpoints, such as the single-minded focus on conserving one species without regard for overall bio-diversity, and they speculate on prospects for a future based upon understanding that, ultimately, everything is related
