Have you ever wondered what happened on the very spot you are sitting on
100 years ago? 200 years ago? 1000 years ago? or even ONE MILLION YEARS
AGO? Well, that is exactly what you will find out about when you
open the pages of this book called On This Spot: An Expedition Through
I know that many of you have seen the ball drop on New Years Eve from the
center of New York City, movies that show the skyscrapers of the “Big Apple”
or pictures of the Statue of Liberty. That is New York as we all
know it today, but like a time traveler you will discover what happened
in New York City almost 540 million years ago. As you open this book,
you will stop over 175 years ago where carriages drove and pigs raced across
an old cobble stone street and then you will venture over 400 years ago
when a tribe of Indians crossed the very spot. But can you guess
what you will encounter next? Or how about 540 million years ago?
Read On This Spot: An Expedition Through Time and discover the events that
may have even happened on your very spot! (Melanie Hahn, firstname.lastname@example.org,
