Atlas Obscura

Right now, people are exploring the outside world in unprecedented numbers thanks to the viral success of Pokémon Go, but in actuality there are plenty of cool things to see in the real world that aren’t magical fighting pocket monsters. It’s these natural wonders that are the subject of Atlas Obscura: An Explorer’s Guide to the World’s Hidden Wonders, an upcoming book based on the popular website of the same name.

Atlas Obscura covers out-of-the-way treasures hidden in all four corners of the globe, from New Zealand to Turkmenistan to South Africa, with a few spots in North America, too. And it does this with more than 450 pages with information on how to find all of them, targeted toward the ambitious global explorer.

Atlas Obscura: An Explorer’s Guide to the World’s Hidden Wonders comes out in September, but you can pre-order your copy from Amazon right here, where it’s priced at $21 on the dot.
