Prepared by DK Publishing in association with the Smithsonian Institution, this oversize volume (10.25x12.25) is distinguished by masterful integration of graphics and text. Nicely designed pages featuring color photographs, maps, and diagrams of various sizes, from thumbnail to two-page spreads, engage even casual browsers. The text supplies plenty of information for readers seeking something beyond the visual display. Editor Luhr is chairman of the Smithsonian's mineral sciences department, and he was joined by other consultants from the Institution in overseeing the project; the text is by a roster of seasoned science writers. Material is divided into five sections on the physical history of the planet Earth, its land, oceans, atmosphere, and tectonic structure. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
