“This series lives up to its “high interest” label. In five concise chapters, readers are introduced to the title subject’s history, cultural significance, and current status. Each spread features a full-page photograph or drawing that complements the relevant and appropriately accessible text. Pronunciation guides would have been helpful for many of these terms but are not included. The author does an especially good job explaining the mysteries that surround these ancient wonders and inspires respect for those who imagined and built them. Glossary. Table of Contents. Index. Recommended. ”—Lynn Van Auken
