Product description


‘It does not disappoint. The new Life on Earth is as glorious as the first’

‘A beautiful and wide ranging work. The breadth of natural history covered is extraordinary and mesmerising. Life on Earth is still breathtakingly rich, and we would know far less about it were it not for Attenborough’s wonderful skills of communication over the years: our cultural and scientific lives would be poorer without him’
New Scientist

‘This natural history masterpiece offers a spectacular snapshot of a once-wild planet’
New Scientist
