"Lightly Lies The Earth is a book of stormy moods, of violence, of macabre action. With power and passion it moves in a relentless sweep, telling an unbelievable tale--unbelievable, you may say--yet unbelievably true while you read it."

Orren Jack Turner (1919-2008) is a notable Princeton portrait and event photographer, best remembered for one of the internet's most popular images of Albert Einstein.
