A Walk Through Time... from stardust to us
224 Pages, Hardcover, Page Size 8"x10"
Published by John Wiley & Sons

Imagine a walk where every step forward transports
you a few million years in time. Just such a mind-expanding
premise inspired this landmark book from the acclaimed "Walk
Through Time" exhibit on tour around the world.
In the book, the text of the exhibition runs
along the bottom of the pages, along with a timeline to show
how many millions of years have passed. Beautifully written
and lavishly illustrated, A Walk Through Time allows
you to both savor the astonishing story of life's evolution
through the engaging narrative of the main text and to enjoy
the exhibition in the comfort of your own home.
"A valuable new way to conceive of the
immensity of geological time and of organic evolution that
has occurred within it and life on Earth. It has broad appeal
to the public and will be a useful guide for science educators
- E.O. Wilson
collaboration among the corporate and nonprofit sectors, futurists,
and scientists, the Walk Through Time project--both
the exhibit and the book--helps us understand our world in
its largest context as we navigate the next thousand feet
along the cosmic timeline."
- Peter Senge,
Through Time was an unforgettable experience, awe inspiring
and humbling. The beautifully designed panels lead from the
fiery birth of our planet through many millions of years to
the miracle of first life, and through the millions more during
which those first simple living specks gradually evolved into
increasingly complex and diverse forms of life as we know
it today. The commentary that guides us is rich in scientific
fact and, unexpectedly, exquisite humor.
"My overall impression? The experience
of the Walk and the book gives us an appreciation of the extraordinary
human brains that have unlocked so many secrets of the past;
of the magnificence of the natural word; of our urgent need,
as we enter the new Millennium, to use the human intellect
to try to heal some of the scars we have inflicted on our
planet during the few moments since our species first appeared
in the web of life."

"A Walk Through Time is a valuable new
way to conceive of the immensity of geological time and of
organic evolution that has occurred within it. It has broad
appeal to the public and will be a useful guide for science
educators as well."

Osborne Wilson, Pellegrino University Research Professor
and Honorary Curator in Entomology, Harvard University Museum
of Comparative Zoology
"The human adventure has something to
do with our recovering together a sense of both
amazement and gratitude at the gift of life. When readers
take this Walk Through Time, they will find themselves as
actors in a larger reality beyond their imagination. Insofar
as we can all join together on this journey of discovery there
will be peace on earth."
- The Very Reverend
Alan Jones, Dean of Grace Cathedral, San Francisco
"I had the good fortune to experience
the one-mile-long Walk Through Time on the streets of San
Francisco. Its innovative presentation of the story of the
evolution of life left me exhilarated, awed, and humbled.
This book will be wonderful for those who may never get to
the mile-long exhibit. It will be a grand memento for those
that do. God speed as the Walk sweeps the world."
- Willie L. Brown,
Jr., Mayor, City of San Francisco
