In 250 glorious photographs Wide Angle: National Geographic Greatest Places documents the beauty and depth of every part of the world. Delving deeply into a picture archive that houses over ten million images, with many photographs being published for the first time, this new book-the third and final in the "greatest photographs" series-presents the world's amazingly diverse places with epic grandeur, unparalleled intimacy, romantic beauty, and gritty realism. The photographs are landscapes, cityscapes, famous landmarks, and unfamiliar spots that reveal special qualities of geography or culture one might otherwise never see.


Spanning more than eleven decades, the images in Wide Angle are divided into twelve chapters, each depicting a unique geography—including East and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, and the Polar Regions. Each chapter is introduced by award-winning cultural writer and critic Ferdinand Protzman, whose essays accent the stunning photographs by renowned National Geographic photographers. Both essays and photographs carefully examine a region's special qualities, creating unique character and its own special and unforgettable sense of place. In Wide Angle, National Geographic photographers have recorded the world's places close up, in sweeping breadth, in depth, and over time.

As far back as the early 19th century, U.S. and European travelers sported the summer-weight, woven palm hats we’ve come to know as Panama hats. Although they’ve always been made in Ecuador, they got their name from the Isthmus of Panama, where they were exported from. California gold miners were among the first to sport these flexible, sun-blocking hats. When President Theodore Roosevelt was pictured wearing one during a visit to the Panama Canal, the Panama hat’s popularity exploded.

With a wide brim, breathable Supplex fabric, and a sweat-wicking headband, this hat provides shade and sun-block with a UPF 30 rating. But add the breathable, seam-taped, waterproof shield and it does double duty as a rain hat. And since the rain shield rolls up and stores under the brim, you’ll be ready no matter how quickly the weather changes. The foam-stiffened brim gives the hat shape and structure and helps keep raindrops from getting under your collar, plus it floats, making this had a great choice for boating and kayaking. Features an external adjustable drawstring and a removable chin cord with cord-lock.
