Pebbles to computers : the thread by Hans Blohm( Book )

8 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the connexions that link and pattern the story of humanity's attempt to understand its experience. If we could not organise our perceptions so as to interpret them, then our cosmos would seem to be random and meaningless. The need to organise and analyse is one of the characteristics that make us human. Our responses to that need make up the history of thought. The story of computation, from the earliest use of pebbles to the most sophisticated modern circuits, is one of the central themes in the story of human endeavour, but this book is more than a history. Here the insights of the artist, the philosopher and the scientist are brought together in a unique conjuction. Like a prismatic lens they reveal colours and planes that are otherwise hidden from sight. -- from dust jacket

Tree : a life story by David T Suzuki( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the story of a single tree, from the moment the seed is released from a cone until, more than five hundred years later, the tree lies on the forest floor as a nurse log, giving life to ferns, mosses, and hemlocks, even as its own life is ending." "The book also looks at the tree's rich and complex relationships with other organisms in its community, from fungi and lichen to other trees to pileated woodpeckers, spotted owls, cougars, grizzly bears, and salmon, among many others. In addition, the book shows how a humble tree connects us to the atmosphere, the underworld of soil, and the world's oceans, as well as linking us all the way back to the origins of the universe and life and far into the future. Finally, the authors place their tree within the context of the growth of botany and events going on in the larger world during one tree's lifetime."--BOOK JACKET
