By: Richard Ellis
304 pages, B/w illus
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.
With a sense of exuberance and wonder [...] Richard Ellis manages the daunting task of compressing 300 million years of evolution into a very readable book - Natural History
