The Starship and the Canoe

by Kenneth Brower

The Starship and The Canoe

A biography of physicist Freeman Dyson and his environmentalist son, George.

The story of a father and son who search for life’s meaning in very different ways. “In the tradition of Carl Sagan and John McPhee, a bracing cerebral voyage past intergalactic hoopla and backwoods retreats.”–Kirkus Reviews
