Summary
The history of all living things can be found in the ground. Epic tales of survival and migration, evolution, and destruction are hidden in the buried remains of animals and plants that lived long ago. This book brings together the most remarkable fossil discoveries to illustrate how life on Earth evolved. Paleontologists Paul Taylor and Aaron O'Dea explain the importance of each fossil and tell the stories of the sharp-eyed and sharp-witted people who discovered them. Discover Cambrian worms from China that provide a window on early animal life in the sea, ancient insects encapsulated by amber, the first fossil bird Archaeopteryx and the last ancestor of humankind. The fossils have been selected from the renowned collections of the two premier natural history museums in the world, the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, and the Natural History Museum, London.--Adapted from book jacket
