With her unique insight into the natural world and our place in it, Diane Ackerman presents a new literary interpretation of science and nature. In contrast to the many apocalyptic visions of climate change and other human sins against nature, The Human Age is a beguiling, optimistic engagement with the earth-shaking changes now affecting every part of our lives and those of our fellow creatures, introducing us to many of the people and ideas now creating — perhaps saving — our future.
