Publisher Description

'A charming book, ringing with the joy of existence.' - Richard Dawkins


'How often have you asked yourself: What is the meaning of life? Sasha Sagan finds it everywhere - with her family, around the world, and especially among the stars... Read her work; you'll have a deeper appreciation for your every step, every bite, and every breath.' - Bill Nye, CEO of The Planetary Society


Sasha Sagan's parents - the astronomer Carl Sagan and the writer and producer, Ann Druyan - taught her that the natural world and vast cosmos are full of profound beauty, and that science reveals truths more wondrous than any myth or fable. When Sagan herself became a mother, she began her own hunt for the phenomena behind our most treasured occasions - from births to deaths, holidays to weddings, anniversaries, and more - growing these roots into a new set of rituals for her young daughter to honour the joy and significance of each experience without relying on a religious framework.


Part memoir, part handbook and part social history, For Small Creatures Such as We is a luminous exploration of all of Earth's marvels that requires no faith in order to be believed.
