Overview : a new way of seeing Earth

Image of item
Book

Young Explorer's Edition ; First Edition.

When astronauts look down at our planet and see its vibrant surface shining against the blackness of space, they experience the Overview Effect--a sense of awe, an awareness that everything is interconnected, and an overwhelming desire to take care of our one and only home.  Overview: Young Explorer's Edition, newly adapted for young readers from the adult book Overview, captures this sense of wonder and shares it with readers without having to leave the ground. Extraordinary aerial photographs reveal Earth's natural beauty and show the surprising, fascinating, and destructive ways humans have impacted our environment. This eye-opening visual journey will forever change the way we see our home planet.
