Sixth Minky's Guide to Strange Places

Sixth Minky's Guide to Strange Places
digest, full color, 24 pages, $1
The latest installment in the Sixth Minky's Guide series details 18 interesting places that Maaike would like to visit someday. The selected locations span the globe from North America to China and from Africa to Australia, and all of them are natural wonders. A few that I found particularly interesting were Socotra Island in Yemen with it's bizarre looking trees, the terraced pools of Pamukkale, Turkey, and Fly Geyser in Nevada which is a small, geothermal geyser that is unfortunately located on private property and virtually inaccessible to the public. Another interesting one is Dismal Canyon in Alabama which features a light show courtesy of flying insects known colloquially as dismalites. Each entry involves a colored photo and a short description. References are included on the last page so that you can learn more about your favorites. This is a nice little zine, and it's a great value at only one dollar.
