About this Item

112 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.Earth Journal was written by the author in the summer of 1972 at age 21. Only a few ending pages, a few updates and corrections; the biography of Sir Thomas More; including the images, were added in May 2010. This nonfiction account is both a commentary on planet earth; a brief history of its age; its place in the solar system as being unique by possessing life; and a brief account of the first Earth Day, as it happened from my 1970 perspective as a college freshman. The book is also a collection of aphorisms, poems, humor, and observations, creating a unique backward glance at 1972, , and my youthful thoughts and opinions. However, the book has been formulated to honor Sir Thomas More, my world famous 15th great grandfather. A collection of public domain photos and a short biography of this great man, a Saint in the Catholic and Anglican Churches, and truly, A man for all seasons, has been added. As the author combines his 1972 writings with the photographs and biography of Sir Thomas More, Mr. Bly celebrates both earth and More as unique entities one a planet; and the other, a man who gave up his life on earth to oppose the King of England, on moral grounds, This book is a oneofakind creation, its nonfiction qualities blended with biography, as well as artistic and spiritual discussions. Though challenging in thought, its a book to be enjoyed for its humor and wit, as well. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
