Few of us will ever be in so remote a place that the silence is almost overwhelming. Sue Baugh talks about exploring many of those while researching the book, Echoes of Earth, Finding Ourselves in the Origins of the Planet. She says, ” To our surprise, these primal places seemed to welcome us. Despite being in the middle of the wilderness, we had never felt so much at home.”

To her, and fellow photographer/artist/researcher, Lynn Martinelli’s,  surprise they found a connection between the world’s oldest stones and our young human race. They ventured to ancient sites in Western Australia, Northwest Canada, Greenland and the Grand Canyon with help from geologists, landowners, indigenous people, crude maps and their own instincts.

Sue’s background in publishing helped her layout the large book and has made it available at Wild Stones Books. In a day full of digital reading, it’s a tactile pleasure to explore two page spreads, photographs that open out, cut-outs and maps. At the end is a section with a timeline of the Earth, science notes and microscopic photographs showing how our inner landscapes reflect the history of the planet. The book makes a fascinating learning tool for educators and anyone interested in learning more about our species’ unique connection to our planet.
