Taking advantage of the amazing sense of perspective that aerial photography offers, this incredible collection of images also offers a unique overview of the events, challenges, and changes of the past 150 years of human history. In spreads up to 20 ? 11½ inches, the eye-opening views here are by such photographers as Margaret Bourke-White, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, and Edward Burtynsky. Among the dozens of highlights are images of Boston in 1860, the first aerial shot of Stonehenge, the test site at Los Alamos, a camel caravan in Iran, the Woodstock Music Festival, an Algerian cityscape, and the iconic Earthrise captured on the surface of the moon.
