The Earth on which we live - whence did it come? How old is it? How were its rocks formed, its valuable minerals and precious stones found? How were its mountains uplifted and its subterranean passageways excavated? When did life appear upon it? How did flowers, animal pets and man himself evolve? These and many other questions that are asked about the Earth and its inhabitants are discussed in this fascinating book. Mono illustrations throughout.
