In this first of a trilogy, the Universe tells its own life story of chaos and creativity, science and struggle. Time after time the Universe nearly perishes, then bravely triumphs and turns itself into new and even more spectacular forms. Eventually it turns stardust into you! This story begins in the very beginning, and ends with the formation of Earth. The second book, From Lava to Life: The Universe Tells Our Earth Story, tells of tiny new living things and ends with giant dinosaurs. In the third book, Mammals Who Morph: The Universe Tells Our Evolution Story, mammals rise and so do you.
