Hailed by "The New York Times "for writing "with wonderful clarity
about science . . . that effortlessly teaches as it zips along,"
nationally bestselling author 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.
