"Man would not be man if his dreams did not exceed his grasp"
...Loren Eiseley, from The Invisible Pyramid
Loren Eiseley was an educator, anthropologist and natural scientist. However, his grace of prose and insight into life are quite transcendent, entering a realm of magic and beauty seldom seen in academic writers. In 1971 he was elected to the prestigious National Institute of Arts and Letters.
The Invisible Pyramid: A naturalist analyses the rocket century was published shortly after the first American moon landing. With luminous prose, Eiseley pondered the philosophical implications of space travel and the future of humanity. A work of continued relevance in the present day.
In classic Eiseley style, the book is organized in a series of evocatively titled chapters: The Star Dragon, The World Eaters, The Spore Bearers ...
Elegant woodcut illustrations by Walter Ferro round out the work.
