Throughout history, natural curiosity has led human beings to explore the vast oceans, chart the night sky, and venture into unknown territories of science. But why? With elegant poetry, Susan Lendroth examines this ever-present drive to discover, from prehistoric cave dwellers to the Age of Galileo to modern-day space exploration. Along the way, readers will learn how far human curiosity has taken us, and consider both the costs and rewards of pursuing the unknown. Enrique Moreiro's rich oil paintings illuminate this intriguing journey into the very heart and spirit of human nature.
