Focusing on the Earth and the life forms that have evolved on it, Mr. Lanham's captivating study covers a wide range of subjects - from the work of Galileo, Copernicus, Herschel, and other scientists who contributed to our knowledge of Earth's position in the universe, to the Earth's internal physiology, intricacies of the biosphere, creation of continents, origins of plant and animal life, the diversity of physical habitats in which these life forms thrive, and much more.
