A MOST IMPROBABLE JOURNEY A Big History of Our Planet and Ourselves

by | Read by Adam Verner

History • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Geologist Walter Alvarez considers "big history" as he links humanity to the chain of events that the big bang began, all leading to you. Adam Verner sounds amazed as he narrates both the science and the more human parts. Each facet of the discussion includes relatable anecdotes, such as one about the life of a mule skinner involved in building the Mount Wilson Observatory who eventually earned an honorary doctorate for his observations there. Verner's lively narration infuses topics that are often dry with energy. He even has fun with humorous material such as a comparison of nature's formations of mountains to the making of a very sloppy sandwich.
