Shrinking the Earth: Don Worster's New Book

Shrinking the Earth is the title of a new book by Kansas historian Don Worster.  In it, he writes that when Europeans discovered the New World for themselves, it was like discovering a new planet.  But a lot has changed in the past 600 years.

It's a big planet. But in many ways, the whole wide world is shrinking. To find out how and why, you might want to check out a new book called Shrinking the Earth, by Don Worster (WORE-stur). Or... you could just turn up the radio and listen to this review, by Commentator Rex Buchanan.

Rex Buchanan is an avid reader and regular contributor to Kansas Public Radio. During the workday, he serves as director of the Kansas Geological Survey, here at the University of Kansas.
