LIFE Seeing is Believing: Amazing People and Places From Around the World

Readers who love the "strange but true" realm-which includes bestsellers from the Guinness Book of World Records to Ripley's Believe It or Not-will love this book from LIFE. The LIFE book falls at the high end of the genre, in that our readers trust LIFE's veracity, and treasure LIFE's always vivid, always truthful photography.

The allure of the incredible is mighty, and in this book one incredible story after another is set before the reader in riveting narratives and pictures that are as beguiling-and often as beautiful-as they are persuasive. Myths are explored (some are exploded!) and legends probed. LIFE's editors travel from the highlands of Scotland to the low country of the American Southeast, investigating occurrences and objects that locals swear are real.

The world's tallest man and its largest animal are visited. Microscopic animals are revealed, as are beasts dating back to the dinosaurs. Could these chimps be our closest cousins? Witness their behavior and decide for yourself (with the help, of course, of information provided in the incisive text). This is a captivating volume for young and mature readers alike.
