Introduction -- The world in a grain of dust -- Life and death among the stars -- A light and intriguing rain of space dust -- The (deadly) dust of deserts -- A steady upward rain of dust -- Dust on the wind heeds no borders -- Did dust do in the Ice Age? -- A steady downward rain of dust -- A few unsavory characters from the neighborhood -- Microscopic monsters and other indoor devils -- Dust to dust. "Some see dust as dull stuff, useless at best, and sneeze-inducing at worst. But in the hands of writer Hannah Holmes, dust becomes a dazzling and mysterious force. As Holmes says, dust is a messenger, and air is its medium. And by the end of this fascinating journey through The Secret Life of Dust, we cannot help but agree."--Jacket.
