About John Perlin
I am the author of four books: "A Golden Thread: 2500 Years of Solar Architecture and Technology;" "A Forest Journey: Wood and Civilization;" "From Space to Earth: The Story of Solar Electricity;" and my latest book, "Let It Shine: The 6000-Year Story of Solar Energy." Harvard University Press Chose "A Forest Journey" as one of its "One-Hundred Great Books" published by the press, as well as a "Classic in Science and World History." The Geographic Society and the Sierra Club chose the book as their "Publication of the Year." "Power of the Sun" and "Sunrise" are two documentaries for which I did the screenplays. "Power of the Sun" was done in collaboration with two Nobel Laureates at University of California, Santa Barbara. John Cleese did the narration. Last month I trekked more than one-hundred miles exploring the vicinity of Troy while reading Homer's "Iliad." My proudest role - raising my boy, who is now in graduate school studying organic chemistry - as a single parent. Like Cheech, I was born in East LA.
