Summary
This book explains a wide range of natural phenomena including how old the universe is, why the continents look like disconnected pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, what causes tsunamis, why there are so many kinds of plants and animals, and who the first man, or woman, was. Starting with the magical, mythical explanations for the wonders of nature, the author reveals the scientific truths behind these occurrences
