Publisher Description

Tim Flannery's The Eternal Frontier is the ground-breaking sequel to The Future Eaters, which changed the way we think about ecological history.


Now Flannery tells the astonishing story of North America from the day 65 million years ago when a meteor ten kilometres wide smashed into the Gulf of Mexico, ending the age of dinosaurs and devastating the continent.


As he traces the rebirth of North America's animals, plants, climate and landforms, Flannery ranges from Alaska in the frozen north to Panama in the tropical south. He gives a fascinating account of how its diverse peoples have changed its environment, especially after the arrival of Columbus in 1492.


This is a sweeping survey of a frontier, which has offered seemingly inexhaustible resources to countless generations of animal and human immigrants.


'No one before Flannery, so far as I know, has been brave enough to tackle the whole pageant of North America…to explain America, in the largest sense, to Americans-and to everyone else.' New York Times Book Review
