PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Unruly Places: Lost Spaces, Secret Cities, and Other Inscrutable Geographies A tour of the world s hidden geographies from disappearing islands to forbidden deserts and a stunning testament to how mysterious the world remains today b At a time when Google Maps Street View can take you on a virtual tour of Yosemite s remotest trails and cell phones double as navigational systems it s hard to imagine there s any uncharted ground left on the planet In i Unruly Places i Alastair Bonnett goes to some of the most unexpected offbeat places in the world to reinspire our geographical imagination .
Bonnett s remarkable tour includes moving villages secret cities no man s lands and floating islands He explores places as disorienting as Sandy Island an island included on maps until just two years ago despite the fact that it never existed Or Sealand an abandoned gun platform off the English coast that a British citizen claimed as his own sovereign nation issuing passports and crowning his wife as a princess Or Baarle a patchwork of Dutch and Flemish enclaves where walking from the grocery store s produce section to the meat counter can involve crossing national borders .
An intrepid guide down the road much less traveled Bonnett reveals that the most extraordinary places on earth might be hidden in plain sight just around the corner from your apartment or underfoot on a wooded path Perfect for urban explorers wilderness ramblers and armchair travelers struck by wanderlust i Unruly Places i will change the way you see the places you inhabit
