SUN, EARTH AND MAN

A general survey of man in relation to nature begins with an on the scene report of a solar eclipse and a small boy's wondering where the Earth would be without the sun. Backtracking, the authors then relate the Earth's origin as part of the sun, early life, early man and so forth on up to the high degree of adaptation to and control of nature's various forces. One could quibble with the Bischofs' definition of man's struggle with nature as a war, but on the whole their book is an efficient concept builder of man, his place on Earth, and Earth's place in the universe.
