Summary

To some, all sand looks alike - countless grains is a vast expanse of beach. But, if you look much closer, the view will never be the same! Employing the amazing microphotography techniques he developed, Greenberg invites readers to discover the strange and wonderful world that each grain of sand contains: once magnified a hundred times it become a landscape of its own. From around the world, the subtle differences in textures, colors, sizes, shapes, composition. As the world unfolds, so does an intriguing explanation of how each grain of sand begins, forms, and finds itself in a particular place, one of a million, yet also one of a kind. Not just a book for beachcombers and holiday-makers, this will appeal as much for it's art as for it's science - a beautiful coffee-table book as well as a fact-filled find for naturists.
