Life on earth began in the sea, and Richard Ellis traces it from the first microbes and fish to jawless, finless creatures that evolved into the 26,000 species alive today including sharks, whales, penguins, dolphins - and humans. Along the way he raises fascinating post-Darwinian questions and answers others.
Richard Ellis is a celebrated authority on marine biology and America's foremost marine life artist whose work has been exhibited worldwide. His nine books include The Search for the Giant Squid (a Publishers Weekly 1998 Best Book of the Year), Great White Shark, Encyclopedia of the Sea, Men and Whales, Monsters of the Sea, Deep Atlantic The Book of Whales, and Imagining Atlantis.
