About this book

In his latest collection of essays, Gould once again offers his unmistakable perspective on nature and the people who have tried to make sense of it. In tandem with the closing of the millennium, Gould brings down the curtain on his nearly 30-year stint as a monthly essayist for Natural History magazine, and presents his penultimate collection of reflections in natural history. In 23 illuminating essays, Gould covers six sections including "The Nature of Fossils and the History of Earth", "Six Little Pieces on the Meaning and Location of Excellence" and "Evolution at All Scales".
