    Title: 1001 Historic Sites You Must See Before You Die
    Author: CAVENDISH RICHARD (EDITOR)

    From heritage sites that preserve wonders of the ancient world, such as the Great Wall of China, to memorials that commemorate significant moments in the twentieth century, and from the Sterkfontein Caves, near Johannesburg in South Africa - the 'cradle of the human race' - to Checkpoint Charlie, the variety of historic sites featured in 1001 Historic Sites You Must See Before You Dieis immense...Many of the great engineering works of the past and present - viaducts, bridges, ships - are represented, together with the homes of the people who have changed the course of history, from Stalin's birthplace to Elvis's Graceland. There are reviews and images of the seats of power, from Versailles to the White House; the world's major battlefields, from Gettysburg to the Somme; and significant monuments and places of worship, such as the Wailing Wall, the Chatmohar Mosque in Pakistan, and St. Peter's Basilica in Rome...It is unlikely that one reader will get around to visiting all 1001 sites in person. However, after reading this book, they will know which are their personal must-see sites, which they absolutely must visit in their lifetime.
