The color of nature by Pat Murphy ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 249 libraries worldwide
What are the colorful secrets of the enigmatic Aurora Borealis or the ethereal shimmer of a floating soap bubble? The Color of Nature - from San Francisco's acclaimed hands-on science museum, the Exploratorium - tackles the conundrum of color. An engaging text by Pat Murphy and extraordinary photographs by William Neill and other acclaimed nature photographers clearly illustrate how colors gracefully illuminate our world. We may be accustomed to thinking of color as nature's home-decorating technique, but the colors we see - in the yellow petals of a daffodil and the blue flicker of a flame - exist as essential tools of nature and are the result of fascinating physical phenomena. Occasionally, after a storm when the corner of our eye captures the elusive rainbow and the leaves of a tree take on a glowing green hue, we stop and wonder at these pure, visual pleasures.

On a moonlit night 30,000 years ago, a young Neanderthal boy dreamed a true dream. In his dream, the spirit of the cave bear commanded the boy to follow her. Transported to a distant future beyond our own, he entered a strange world of brilliant and terrifying possibilities, a world inhabited by people who did not know the nature spirits, or even understand the spirits of their own technology. Guided only by memories, the young Neaderthal must recreate the shaman's path. He must reconcile the powerful and capricious spirit of the cave bear with the realities of life in the new world, and find a way to save his people, the animals, and their sacred relationship. The clash of prehistoric shamanic traditions with future technology makes for a gripping tale in this first novel by the Nebula Award-winning author.
