Description

The critically acclaimed author brings a scientist's curiosity and a poet's soul to a delightful tour of a single day on Earth

Most of us do not give a second thought to the elemental rhythms of daily life. In Apollo's Fire, Michael Sims sets out to open our eyes--literally--to the miraculous events that lie underneath the oldest story on Earth: the passing of a single day. In a profound and witty narrative that begins in the darkness before dawn, progresses through morning, noon, evening, and ends, fittingly, back in darkness, Sims takes us on an exhilarating ride through the oft- overlooked journey that all of us make every day.
