From the big bang to black holes, from dark matter to dark energy, from the origins of the universe to its ultimate destiny, The Edge of the Sky tells the story of the most important discoveries and mysteries in modern cosmology—with a twist. The book's lexicon is limited to the thousand most common words in the English language, excluding physics, energy, galaxy, or even universe. Through the eyes of a fictional scientist (Student-People) hunting for dark matter with one of the biggest telescopes (Big-Seers) on Earth (Home-World), cosmologist Roberto Trotta explores the most important ideas about our universe (All-there-is) in language simple enough for anyone to understand. A unique blend of literary experimentation and science popularization, this delightful book is a perfect gift for any aspiring astronomer. The Edge of the Sky tells the story of the universe on a human scale, and the result is out of this world.
I have imagined myself sitting in a corner somewhere between clouds and roofs . Close to one of the most amazing 'thing' we have that make us dream, reflect, hope and looking for answers . Sky just let it be and keep us warm with sunset's colors and while this seemed to arrive, I was writing and dissolving thoughts and feelings .Every experience changes us and we collect so much 'inner' postcards that become our structure, we can continue to take care, to forgive and to let them go if we feel it necessary .

The Edge of the Sky's lyrical and narrative poems take the reader on a journey into the natural world: the awe and wonderment of birthing new life, the power of seed breaking through acres of land, the pulse of an underground spring. They encompass life lived more hours outdoors than indoors. This journey involves an engagement with large animals: a bull, breeding cows, companion horses, as well as pesky cats. The journey takes twists and turns through war, death, and the passing of time via images and metaphors that ring true with fellow human beings wherever they live in this interesting world.
This is the story of how Anhua Gao first struggled with and then against the ideological machine of Red China. It is a story of pain and horror, turmoil and tragedy. But most of all it is the story of a woman who found courage, hope and humour and who, against unbelievable odds, survived.
Edward Geary's collection of writings on the High Plateau country of central and southern Utah, a combination guidebook, travel narrative, personal essays, and natural, social, and literary history, encompasses each of those forms with a sweep as broad as the landscape it describes. It traces the progress of travelers to the region, including the historic Dominguez-Escalante party in 1776, and trappers and explorers such as Jedediah Smith, John C. Freemont, and Kit Carson. Scandinavian and English descendants of the early Mormon pioneers, sent to settle Manti and surrounding areas by Brigham Young in 1849, populate many of the pages and dominate the agrarian villages described by the author. The book also describes the multiethnic society of French Basque, Greeks, Slavs, Italians, Chinese, Welsh, and Finnish laborers and coal miners that developed in the region. Geary writes of all these people with affection and a deep sense of place, of belonging to a distinctive landscape and its history. It is a book that will bring a rush of understanding to those who have lived in the High Plateaus and greater depth of appreciation to visitors.
