The Birth of Earth tells a dreamers version about the wonders of Creation. It deals with the narrator's adventures traveling through darkness in search of truth. It does not challenge religion or science. It merely is an attempt to create an interesting story about the miracles that started it all. Gene Bacon, the author, served in World War II where he sustained a wound from a snipers fire. Bacon taught in Ohio and Michigan and retired in 1980 from Trenton Public Schools, teaching literature and theatre arts. He produced outstanding productions to both the student body and community. With his wife Adele he now abides in Tayor, Michigan at the American House, an assisted living community. Bacon previously published a book of his poems called, "Voices." Angela Lavich, Bacon's granddaughter, supplied the artwork for the book. She is married with two lovely children.

Based on his experience both as a flight engineer and as an instructor with the RAF the author has written a concise guide to aerodynamics. With the change in the CAA technical subjects from January 1991, making all previous optional subjects mandatory, there is a gap in the market for instructional material which can be easily understood at all levels. This book has been written to fill that gap.
