About the Book

Overview

Millions of years have passed, but the earth has remained a singular miracle. Poets have written of its wonders--as well as of our failure to live up to our responsibilities as caretakers of the planet. In this sweeping anthology for young readers, award-winning author Jane Yolen has collected poems of C.S. Lewis, Joseph Langland, William Stafford, Christina Rossetti, and others who have paid tribute to our fragile world. These thirty-five voices cry with joy, grief, and hope for "our Mother the Earth, our Father the Sky."

Reviews

"An eclectic collection of verse concerning the beauty, the destruction, and the conservation of the earth."--Booklist
