The critically acclaimed author brings a scientist's curiosity and
a poet's soul to a delightful tour of a single day on Earth
Most of us do not give a second thought to the elemental rhythms
of daily life. In "Apollo's Fire," Michael Sims sets out to open
our eyes?literally?to the miraculous events that lie underneath the
oldest story on Earth: the passing of a single day. In a profound
and witty narrative that begins in the darkness before dawn,
progresses through morning, noon, evening, and ends, fittingly,
back in darkness, Sims takes us on an exhilarating ride through the
oft- overlooked journey that all of us make every day.
Apollo's Fire" is popular science at its most engaging?sure to
appeal to fans of Diane Ackerman, Michael Pollan, and Dava Sobel.
