About this book

From the author of "Earth From the Air" comes a moving and beautifully photographed new book. "Home", scheduled to release in conjunction with a film of the same name, is a globe-spanning exploration of the planet, complete with Yann Arthus-Bertrand's unforgettable images and an informative text by the team at Good Planet, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable development.

"Home" is a celebration of Earth's beauty and an impassioned call to protect it from destruction. Voyaging through over 50 countries, the book covers topics relevant to the environment's current condition and factors which will play a role in determining its future: Earth, Agriculture, Cities, Oil, Global Warming, Sea, Water, Forest and Humanism. Compelling and consistently optimistic, the book focuses on practical solutions for today's environmental challenges. As Arthus-Bertrand says, 'It isn't the 50 per cent of forest that has disappeared that's important, but the 50 per cent that's left'. With vocal support from Luc Besson, who produced the film, "Home" will have tremendous impact on readers and viewers alike.
