KIRKUS REVIEW

Recognized as the ablest interpreter of science to the layman, Ruth Moore has this time taken geology and tells the story with its strange ramifications and slow patterns of growth. Through the flood myths, the earliest scientific interpretations of determining factors and on to the 19th century scholars, the picture changes, develops and grows. But still the origin of Earth remained the most challenging problem to all and in our own time there are fresh theories from new angles and new complications. Science here is made as good as a detective story for the layman.
