Content descriptions

General Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 98-101).
Summary, etc.: If all of Earth's history were compressed into a twenty-four-hour clock, people-like creatures didn't show up until the last minute: 11:59 p.m. Ever wonder what happened before humans got here? Well, almost 14 billion years ago, it all started with a BIG BANG, and what began as a cloud of gas, dust, and rock eventually took shape and bloomed into a molten sphere. Battered by asteroid collisions, ice ages, shifting tectonic plates, massive thaws, and epic refreezes, our fledgling planet finally pushed forth continents. Geological activity continues to sculpt the landscape today, sometimes with terrible consequences for Earth's inhabitants: earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis. In this explosive (and humorous) biography of Earth, Sibert Honor medalist Don Brown spins an earth-shaking tale of the planet we call home.
