Earth Day Book Give-Away


Happy Earth Day!


To celebrate Mother Earth, we are giving away a prize package of 2 books!


Principles of Geology by Charles Lyell

One of the key works in the nineteenth-century battle between science and Scripture, Charles Lyell’s Principles of Geology (1830-33) sought to explain the geological state of the modern Earth by considering the long-term effects of observable natural phenomena. Written with clarity and a dazzling intellectual passion, it is both a seminal work of modern geology and a compelling precursor to Darwinism, exploring the evidence for radical changes in climate and geography across the ages and speculating on the progressive development of life. A profound influence on Darwin, Principles of Geology also captured the imagination of contemporaries such as Melville, Emerson, Tennyson and George Eliot, transforming science with its depiction of the powerful forces that shape the natural world.

    Awesome, Happy earth day 😊

  4. Jennifer R. says:

    It goes without saying (but I will say it anyway) that I’d love to read both of these. For Earth Day, I’m using my computer and electricity less (mm) and upping my natural resources intake (reading by the sunlight of an open window).

    I’ve been a fan of Ms. Raybourn’s books since Silence in the Grave, and never miss getting all that she’s written since. What a gift for writing she has, I even re-read them. I can’t wait for the newest books she mentioned in your blog.
    I’ve been a member of PBS for quite awhile, and have always had great results. I’m a total bookworm, and enjoy reading, and I find many, many good books to keep me turning pages into the wee hours of the night. Thank you PBS!
