This year, several graduates will receive Barbara Kerley's new book The World is Waiting for You. Published by National Geographic, it is a book filled with captivating photographs, each accompanied by words that encourage - and even challenge - exploration, discovery, questioning, and observation. The carefully selected images complement the text. "Dig deeper" rests on the page of an archaeologist uncovering bones. "Poke around for a while" sits below a beam of selenite in the Cave of Crystals in Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico. Best of all, the origins of the photographs are described in a photo glossary at the end. It is an excellent book for celebrating the paths we follow and the risks we take...and simply beautiful to view.
