Nature photography in a class of its own

Today, 4.5 billion years after its birth, our planet is in its prime. Unfortunately, however, man has interfered so mas- sively in system Earth that it can no longer be termed a pa- radise. In this book, Michael Martin describes in profound, informative texts the fascinating history of our planet and the influence of man on nature. In breathtaking images, the author portrays the beauty and diversity of Earth and shows just how much we stand to lose if we do not succeed in pro- tecting our planet better.
