Information

Earth and beyond is a very popular subject for authors and writers. Your local library will probably have a good selection of books (and maybe CD-ROMs) to choose from. Your school library is also a good place to look. If you are looking for good sources of information, which are not too difficult to read, why not print out the list from the Resources page?
