How would the planet reclaim its surface? What creatures would emerge from the dark and swarm? How would our treasured structures--our tunnels, our bridges, our homes, our monuments--survive the unmitigated impact of a planet without our intervention? In his revelatory, bestselling account, Alan Weisman draws on every field of science to present an environmental assessment like no other, the most affecting portrait yet of humankind's place on this planet.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Alan WeismanPublisher: Picador USAPublished: 08/05/2008ISBN: 9780312427900Pages: 416Weight: 0.74lbsSize: 8.16h x 5.76w x 0.72dReview Citations: Newsweek 05/26/2008 pg. 12Entertainment Weekly 08/08/2008 pg. 72People Weekly 09/01/2008 pg. 47New York Times Book Review 09/07/2008 pg. 24
