The third planet from the sun is mankind's home - but how
well do you know it? Its molten core, for instance, is
hotter than the surface of the sun. Now, TIME presents an
unrivaled portrait of Planet Earth: its violent history, its
vast oceans, its constantly changing geology, its
life-sheltering atmosphere, its fascinating life forms, and
its imperiled climate.
TIME joins scientists in the field, visits with indigenous
people and consults with experts to report on the biggest
story of this year and every year: Planet Earth. And we
visit the Earth's extremes: the longest rivers, tallest
mountains and driest deserts on the planet. This beautifully
illustrated volume, featuring the work of award-winning
photographers, presents a portrait of our wondrous
planet--and of all the beings that call it home--that is
revelatory, awe-inspiring and essential.
