User Review  - GarryRogers - LibraryThing

The armchair explorer's guide to the geography of imaginative literature. I thought I knew some of the places well, but I learned more when I saw them through the authors' eyes. This book is a source of ideas, but it's mainly just fun. Read full review

I bought this book as a gift for my husband. He and our daughter are enjoying reading about imaginary lands. In addition to the extensive details and descriptions there are maps and drawings included in this book. A great reference book for anyone who enjoys imaginary places! Read full review
