The World in a Grain by Vince Beiser

Although we may be but grains in an ever-running hourglass, our current livelihood was built up across the millennia by all the grains of those that came before us. Beiser ultimately positing from his learnings on roads to glass to sand itself as a finite and diminishing resource, if our civilization is one that will be put to the test of time, will it sand. Simply fascinating. - Ian
