Rarely have I seen such a wonderful compendium of photographs, such a breathtaking, sad and inspiring view of our world as seen from above. Few of us have the opportunity to view the Earth from such a lofty perspective, as though God himself were observing the great beauty, patterns and drama of our daily lives. Day by day, we give an account of ourselves from oil rigs to farmer's field, ranch to glistening glacier, chilly mountaintop and verdant vineyard to the world of the bricklayer, print master, fisherman and street vendor. Have we preserved the splendor and visions of the past? In our thirst for greater prosperity, are we destroying that which we hold most dear, our Earth, our very lives themselves? If a picture is worth a thousand words, then The New Earth From Above is a dissertation of global importance.
