Reader recommendation: Apocalyptic Planet

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

Oh my.  I am reading Apocalyptic Planet: Field Guide to the Everending Earth, by Craig Childs. It is an intelligent and informed discussion of our home in all of its cycles. I am struck most by the absolute beauty of Childs's language as he describes landscapes and moving through them. Extraordinary!
