Please note, as of August 2023, this series has switched to being published as an ebooks-only series, with the publisher citing the high cost of printing. Unfortunately NHBS does not sell these volumes.
This series is conceived as a vehicle for presenting first hand, accurate, up to date information about prehistoric life for the intelligent lay reader. Each book is written by an expert or group of experts on the topic covered and reviewed for accuracy by other specialists in the field. Technical jargon is kept to a minimum, and each book is profusely illustrated with photographs, drawings, and reconstructions of ancient plants and animals.
