Every third travel book these days is titled:

101 places you must see before you die

or

500 places you must take your kids to see before they turn 12 and are charged full adult prices


So it is something of our times, when a new book appears:

500 Places to See Before They Disappear


500 Places to See Before They Disappear enables passionate travelers and the eco-conscious to learn about and plan a visit to see rare cultural, historic, and natural places before they are irrevocably altered or even gone forever. Here are one-of-a-kind landscapes, fragile ecosystems, rare bird habitats, places to see the last remaining species of big game in the wild, cityscapes in peril, vanishing cultural kitsch, petroglyphs, and more-500 thoughtfully-chosen treasures that will inspire and enlighten travelers of all ages.

Each entry explains why it's been included, gives its history, the nature of the threat against it, brief practical information on how to visit, and what visitors can to do protect it. A Geographical Index allows travelers to locate attractions across the world. Photos throughout the book help bring destinations to life.
