Product Description:
Recognized for more than a century for clarity, accuracy and detail even the military has relied Michelin maps Michelin offers over 200 selections for cities, regions and countries in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. In-house cartographers, or mapmakers produce each map and atlas and leave no stone unturned. Everything from major roads to the tiniest routes is depicted on Michelin maps to allow travelers to go off the beaten path with confidence. What makes Michelin maps and atlases stand out? Michelin maps are frequently updated and specifically designed with travelers in mind. Michelin's cartography, user-friendly format and cross-referencing abilities with its renowned guidebook collections are paramount. The clear, clean and uncluttered style of Michelin maps is compounded with extreme attention to detail covering scenic roads, footpaths, panoramic views, emergency telephones, road widths and more. It's this kind of detail that can, for example, help North American tourists avoid surprises while traveling down narrow roads that are often hundreds of years old. Buildings, monuments, park trails and government offices are highlighted, too. When it comes to ease of use, Michelin has really done its homework. Michelin maps and the patented Michelin fold make it a snap to refold, even with one hand on the wheel. All Michelin atlases are available in spiral format, too. That's the number one binding preference according to independent consumer research. Michelin's unique cross-referencing system also makes mapping out travelers trips a cinch. Maps and guides throughout the Michelin collection work together with universal symbols directing to more information.

Product Description:
Lyon’s “Vieux Lyon” (Old Town) is a gourmand’s delight that is located at the confluence of the Rhone and Saone rivers. This city of beautiful Renaissance houses is one of the most important in France and has many historical attractions to see including the Roman City and the Notre Dame de Fourviere Cathedral. The French Alps lie to the north of Provence and the French Riviera and are within easy to reach of Lyon, Geneva, Grenoble and Nice. The region is one of the most popular skiing destinations in the world and is called the “snow-capped roof” of Europe. The resort of Chamonix was the setting of the first Winter Olympics in 1924. The capital of the region is Grenoble, a city where the first stirrings of the French Revolution took place. Other towns of note include Annecy, with its beautiful backdrop of Lac d'Annecy and Briancon, the highest town in France.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
Combining environmental history, personal memoir and a view on the complicated relationship between humans and the landscapes they destroy by loving them too much, this book is a warning beacon highlighting how it is that a lifestyle, however alluring, can be made precarious by the very natural forces that creates its charm. This diary is a provocative exploration of the tenuous interface between the urban and wild worlds, and of the nature of community in an increasingly profit-oriented society.
