Product Details


“I learned more about the Moon by reading this book than I have in a lifetime of study. Replete with fascinating insights into the Moon’s origins and history, but more than that, what it has meant to us, the people of Earth, Our Moon is a must-read for anyone who has looked up at the Moon in wonder.”—Chris Hadfield, astronaut, bestselling author of The Apollo Murders and The Defector

“An excellent exploration of how the moon has shaped life on Earth . . . [Rebecca] Boyle’s dexterous blend of science and cultural history is elevated by her spry prose. This illuminates.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Epic in scope—and almost poetic in its narrative beauty—Our Moon will change how you think about our planet, the Moon, and ourselves.”—Neil Shubin, author of Your Inner Fish

“Glinting with intriguing facts and fascinating connections, Our Moon reveals the astoundingly intimate relations between the closest heavenly body, the Earth, and all life as we know it. Boyle’s writing shines, shifting through time and space, science and sentiment—a luminous read.”—Rebecca Wragg Sykes, author of Kindred

“In telling the tale of Earth’s oldest companion, Boyle offers an absorbing account of the human experience. Deftly written with a poet’s precision and scientific sensibility, Our Moon establishes Boyle as one of the preeminent nature writers of our time.”—David W. Brown, author of The Mission

“With a remarkable command of planetary science and human history, Boyle provides a sweeping, lyrical account of our cosmic neighbor.”—Peter Brannen, author of The Ends of the World

“This vivid and moving exploration of the Moon’s impact shows how influential the pockmarked orb has always been. Past and present collide, and science and storytelling become one, as Boyle draws Earth’s nearest neighbor closer to its inhabitants.”—Sarah Scoles, author of Making Contact
