'Effortlessly synthesise scientific information, scholarship, fascinating and perceptive accounts of the great environmental and creationist debates over the last two hundred years, and a witty and perceptive appreciation of human foibles.' - Jacqueline Kent, Australia Book Review 'Evocative and brilliant.
