I am now deep into the book, “The World Without Us” by Alan Weisman, and I must say, this has been an incredible read. The author takes us on a journey of human history and our relationship (attack) upon the natural world. He poses the thought experiment, “what would the Earth be like if we all suddenly disappeared?”.

I bought all non-fiction materials, and found this gem among the pile of books there. It was stamped “Discarded” by our local public library, so was probably donated to the book sale.[...]
