Book of the Week | The Story of Earth by Robert M. Hazen
Hey there! I hope you’re safe and coping well. The times haven’t been any more difficult than this and I know it’s hard but we’ve to cling to hope and faith.
Last week’s theme and book were important reminders of the roots that we come from, as a Nation. All those lives lost more than seven decades ago are the reasons why we live freely in a democracy.
The next Week’s theme is more global, it is about something that is common and important to all of us, most important, I’d say.
Yeah, you’re right! It’s Earth Week and this week’s theme is Earth.
Book of the Week: The Story of Earth by Robert M. Hazen
Synopsis: Robert M. Hazen offers a radical new approach to Earth history in this intertwined tale of the planet’s living and nonliving spheres. With an astrobiologist’s imagination, a historian’s perspective, and a naturalist’s eye, Hazen calls upon twenty-first-century discoveries that have revolutionized geology and enabled scientists to envision Earth’s many iterations in vivid detail—from the mile-high lava tides of its infancy to the early organisms responsible for more than two-thirds of the mineral varieties beneath our feet. Lucid, controversial, and on the cutting edge of its field, The Story of Earth is popular science of the highest order.
