    DescriptionWhat is our place on Earth? Are humans destined to become a footnote in history, or will we become stronger and wiser, and conquer our environmental problems? In this extraordinary story of our planet and our place upon it, "Here on Earth" discovers the remarkable source of all life and how it has developed into the wonder around us today. From ant-colonies to zinc mining, Tim Flannery takes us on a journey around the world and from the top of the food-chain to the very chemicals of which we are made, and explores how the fate of humanity is in our own hands.

    Review quote
    A defiantly optimistic book ... beautifully written Scotsman Flannery is a wonderful writer, an original scientist, and a gifted populariser Guardian A triumph ... a well-written, persuasive and at times alarming venture into past, present and future ... deserves to be widely read Financial Times Flannery's writing never fails to please Observer
