To be alive is to change, to adapt.

THE UNIVERSE IS VAST, and we, like children, are drawn to its mysteries. Evolution and Us explores its power and relevance to our humanity, and the ever-changing nature of human civilizations. This book stems from the author’s desire to widen the horizons of our communal thinking to encompass our human past and future through the lens of evolution.

A thoughtful, well-organized collection of poems that speak to the concepts and questions around global warming and change in both human and environmental conditions on Planet Earth—and our place in the larger universe. It’s at once provocative and inspiring.
