Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the best-selling tradition of Smithsonian Animal, this extraordinary survey of our planet provides unrivaled insight into the forces and processes that formed our environment and which continue to influence its evolution. With thousands of breathtaking photographs and unique visual catalogues of the features and phenomena that take place on Earth — such as rocks, minerals, and mountains to tropical rain forests and the different types of clouds — Earth contains the most up-to-date ideas on how our world works, a compelling review on the health of the planet, and unbelievable images of the world's most stunning features.

Book News Annotation:

Prepared by DK Publishing in association with the Smithsonian Institution, this oversize volume (10.25x12.25<">) is distinguished by masterful integration of graphics and text. Nicely designed pages featuring color photographs, maps, and diagrams of various sizes, from thumbnail to two-page spreads, engage even casual browsers. The text supplies plenty of information for readers seeking something beyond the visual display. Editor Luhr is chairman of the Smithsonian's mineral sciences department, and he was joined by other consultants from the Institution in overseeing the project; the text is by a roster of seasoned science writers. Material is divided into five sections on the physical history of the planet Earth, its land, oceans, atmosphere, and tectonic structure.
