Travis Elborough explores such unusual and perplexing locations as San Juan in Parangaricuto, a town entirely submerged by lava and Leap Castle in Ireland - allegedly the world's most haunted house. Spanning centuries and reaching all around the globe, each entry will provide key information, wittily observed, and be accompanied by beautiful illustrations that evoke both the habitat and our relationship to it.
