The story of our planet, far from being dull and uneventful, is stirring, even terrifying at times. Though there remain chapters beyond our knowledge, the geological record has allowed us to reconstruct our history from the origins of our planet until the moment our species appeared.
Through this book, we will discover the history of our planet and how geological processes have influenced the origin and evolution of life forms, even as they have often brought us close to extinction.
A voyage across time into the furthest depths of the earth.
Within its strata, the planet earth conceals a moving history of creations and extinctions, and Nahúm Méndez, a geologist in a tight spot, describes it to us in the most amusing and educational manner possible.
