By: Ellen Tan Drake
386 pages, B/w photos, illus
Revisionist biography of this fine geologist, whose writings postulated on biological evolution, the usefulness of fossils, and the formulation of geomorphological features predated the major works which followed his death.
Drake skillfully focuses on Hooke's research in geologic phenomena and places it within a larger historical context. . . .Beautiful illustrations coupled with Drake's well-written prose make for an enjoyable read. --Choice
"Throughout, the book is informed by Drake's considerable scholarship...[She] has brought to life and to our attention the amazingly erudite and fresh voice of Robert Hooke."--Isis
