I love Rachel's work and have for a while and this latest book is no exception. The Wonderous Workings of Planet Earth is beautifully illustrated and incredibly informative. This is an excellent read for teens, young adults, and adults! Most importantly it is an amazing tool for younger generations to gain a basic understanding of the fact that serious changes need to happen now if we, as humans, are going to continue to enjoy the beauty of the nature around us and the resources provided by the planet without continuing the destruction caused in large part by older, uninformed generations. This topic is approached in the book through an ecological standpoint but also an economic perspective, stating that carelessness toward nature is not the only problem, but that turning a blind eye to poverty also contributes to the large scale problems we are all facing. There are so many important issues threatening humanity and society, but if the planet is destroyed, none of that will really matter. This book is a powerful piece in the fight for all living things.
