Find Yourself in the Origins of the Earth

Echoes of Earth documents some of the world’s oldest rock and mineral sites in Western Australia, Greenland, NW Canada, and the United States. With stunning photographs and powerful literary imagery, the author blends science and art, the personal and universal to reveal the intimate connection between Earth’s long history and our human bodies. Ancient minerals lie deep in our bones, ancient life within our cells. As the title suggests, we are all echoes of Earth.
