Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Planet Earth is presented in a captivating and original perspective in this extraordinary collection of breathtaking images. Through the use of satellites and various lenses and imagery techniques, previously hidden aspects of the planet are brought into full view, among them a thread of gold weaving its way through a mountain range; cities swallowed by shifting sands or dense jungle; and the eye of the fiercest hurricane. Four distinct chapters—Earth, Water, Air, and Fire—each feature different aspects of the planet, including mountains, forests, deserts and tundra; rivers, coastlines, and ice fields; storms, cyclones, and atmospheric phenomena such as the aurora borealis; and forest fires, volcanoes, and lava fountains. Accompanied by insightful commentary, this compilation presents a provocative and astounding portrait of our planet.
