Maybe it is time: Let’s Get Lost

the world’s most stunning remote locations

by Finn Beales


This title will be welcomed by those who have wanderlust, even if they are not currently traveling. Organized by sections on Mountains, Wilderness, Coast, Ice & Snow, Lakes & Rivers, and Forests, it is filled with spectacular photographs and essays. I especially enjoyed the “Behind the Lens” sections in which the artists explain something about their craft.

As one example, I read the essay on the Cape Wrath Trail that takes Richard Gaston on a long (!) hike through northernmost Scotland. I felt his experience viscerally as, at moments, the rain poured down. The accompanying photos gave a good sense of place. This is true for all of the landscapes featured here.

For armchair adventurers who enjoy spending time in less usual places, this book could make a welcome gift. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to review this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
