"Some lands are flat and grass-covered, and smile so evenly up at the sun that they seem forever youthful, untouched by man or time. Some are torn, ravaged and convulsed like the features of profane old age. Rocks are wrenched up and exposed to view; black pits receive the sun but give back no light. It was to such a land I rode, but I rode it across a sunlit, timeless prairie . . ."
Breathtaking landscapes and language, prompting "nostalgic yearnings for some islands outside of time" where creation is still in process. A profound and entertaining exploration of the ongoing human journey through earth's evolution.
