I COULDN’T put it down and I read the whole thing in just less than 6 hours!!!! I LOVED IT!!!!
I purchased your book “Not by Fire but by Ice” through Amazon. It was a good thing that I was off work last night… I COULDN’T put it down and I read the whole thing in just less than 6 hours!!!! I LOVED IT!!!! It made more sense than anything I’ve almost ever read, and illustrated the flaws in long-held beliefs that won’t go away to this day, like the demise of the Mammoths and other prehistoric creatures. Its never just “one thing” and the “smoking gun” is usually ONLY the last event in a series of events.
An example I use is Mt Mitchell here in North Carolina. There was a great die-off of the Firs and Balsams. They blamed “acid rain.” Yes “acid rain” was and is present, but there were other culprits as well, the “Wooly Aphid” an alien parasite that attacked the trees, plus it was drier at that altitude in the 1980’s,
But here’s another little gem that was overlooked… a LOT of these trees were roughly the same age. And they were “old.” Thus they were susceptible to “all of the above…” It was and still is never just “one” thing, or a smoking gun. Your book illustrates this PERFECTLY. It’s always a combination of events that occur in CYCLES, and everything has its own “cycle.”
This book of yours was a “page turner” and a brain burner, and I feel even more enlightened by having read it.~Recorded~ human history is only a few thousand years old, and was not around at the end of the last Ice Age. We’ve been LUCKY,and this will not last….
Great book!!! I will encourage others to read it and buy it as well!!!!!!!
