Zitat

"Tales of the Earth reads like 'Ripley's Believe It or Not' with footnotes, but the authors are never less than scholarly. They respond to catastrophe with curiosity, not panic: if we can't banish natural disasters, we can at least learn to be better stewards of the planet."--Newsweek"Exceptionally lively....From hundreds of millions of years ago to this summer, from droughts and ice ages and volcanoes to the black plague, Officer and Page prance from topic to topic across the aeons, providing an irresistible combination of history, speculation, humor and 'hard science' explanation."--Washington Post Book World"Each chapter is jam-packed with interesting anecdotes to help illustrate and drive home the impact of the various events described....A very entertaining and informative book to read...suggest it to anyone interested in the mechanisms (and their results) of the world in which we live."-Douglas J. Galpin, Harvard University
