Two separate creation stories?

Are there two Separate Creation Stories in the Book of Genesis,

One in Chapter 1 and the Second in Chapter 2?

In Genesis 1:26-27 it appears God created man and woman together. In Genesis 2:19-22, it is said God created woman at a certain time after man. Also, it appears in Genesis 2:19 God created man before animals, but in Genesis 1:20-25 God created animals before man. Both of these accounts can’t be right, or can they?

Here is the explanation: In the 1st chapter we read a quick fly by summary of creation giving us a chronological order of events. In chapter 2, God fills details about creation which were not given in chapter 1. Chapter 2 is not meant to be read chronologically but rather to give the reader added information regarding the creation account.

In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth,

and the heavens are the work of your hands.

Psalm 102:25
