The Beginning brings an incredible story to life: the most astonishing history of the Universe. It is the story of who we are, where we are, and how we came to be here. It is the story of life itself. Beautifully illustrated throughout, and containing a wealth of factual information to complement extraordinary narrative, The Beginning will take you on a journey of wonder: from alien landscapes to "upside-down" continents, violent collisions, and mass extinction; from worms with jaws and pigs as big as men to saber-toothed cats and monstrous dinosaurs. A time when humans were the victims, not masters, of their world. Encounter history as you have never experienced it before.

Review: The Beginning: Voyages Through Time (Voyages Through Time)

User Review  - Janice - Goodreads

Evolution. Good, easy to understand look at our Earth and the time periods. Filled with pictures and little snippets of information. You can hear the author express some doubt as to which creature might have come before others with the way he phrases things. But in all, a good reference book. Read full review
