Part one of this book describes the different kinds of rocks, soil, and mountains found on our planet and explores how they came into being. This section also deals with the depths of the Earth and the long ages of time.
By contrast, part two examines the heights of our universe in the movement of the Sun, Moon, and stars. These celestial bodies give us our sense the cycles of days, months, and years.
Throughout, Kovacs links the phenomena he's describing with human experience, how they affect people in different parts of the world.
Charles Kovacs (1907-2001) was born in Austria and, after spending time in East Africa, settled in Britain. In 1956 he became a class teacher at the Rudolf Steiner School in Edinburgh, where he remained until his retirement in 1976. His lesson notes have been a useful and inspirational resource for many teachers.
