Gray’s stunning photographs and fascinating text provide unique insight into why these powerful holy places are the most venerated and visited sites on the entire planet. Maps adapted from the National Geographic Society show the locations of all the sites presented, and a thorough appendix includes a comprehensive list of over 500 of the world’s sacred sites.

Clapton, the Autobiography by Eric Clapton (5 copies will be given away): Well-known for his reserve in a profession marked by self-promotion and spin, Clapton is finally ready to tell his story in his own words.

From unvarnished accounts of his drug-addled and hard-drinking years and his long, hard road to recovery, to revelations about his failed marriage to George Harrison's ex-wife Patti Boyd (who years earlier had inspired "Layla," Clapton's classic ballad of unrequited love), to the devastating impact of the accidental death of his four-year-old son in 1991, Clapton describes his tumultuous life with striking candor.
