Description

Once upon a time there was no earth.

  • How did it begin?
  • When did it begin?
  • Where did the earth's atmosphere come from?
  • Is rock always hard?
  • Why does a volcano erupt?
  • What makes a geyser?
  • Is it true that the earth's crust bends beneath us?
  • How did we learn the story of the ancient earth?

In THE FIRST BOOK OF THE EARTH the author answers these and many other questions about the planet we live on. Here is the dramatic story of our ever-changing earth, simply told, and with anecdotes of some of the men who pioneered in our knowledge of it.

Illustrated with graphic, two-color drawings.

Publisher Recommended: Grades 6 and up
