The Invisible Pyramid by Loren EiseleyDate 03/07/2016
I picked up this gem of a book in a secondhand junk store for just 1$ and it is a lovely piece of work. It is a book that teaches you more about how beautiful the poetry of noticing the things in your environment is, rather than the content of the book itself.
You realize how much we miss in everyday life, the things you miss because you're so busy and stressed out, the things you take for granted. What Eiseley does in this book is to chart a version of human history as he saw it from first hand experience. It is a book about how human yearning, the yearning to learn and explore created the Rocket Century, about how our aspirations will create the future.
I don't know if you will every find this book or the Author anywhere. But for that small shop in Maui, I wouldn't have found him either.
