Description: By describing the remarkable forces that formed and shaped our ever-changing world,Earth Storygives us a new understanding of the planet and our place within its evolution. When and how was Earth formed? What is the link between earthquakes, volcanoes, and the creation of continents? How do mountains affect our climate? What triggers ice ages?Earth Storyanswers these and many other questions as it tells the amazing story of our planet and its constantly changing nature. Two centuries ago, scientists began to investigate the history of Earth by examining the rocks beneath its surface and began to formulate the astonishing concept of geological time. Using this discovery as their starting point, Simon Lamb and David Sington unravel the fascinating history of Earth from its earliest beginnings to the dawn of human civilization, using full-color illustrations, stunning photography, and the latest scientific thinking.
