Description

This book has piqued my interest in other Nature Company Guide books.

This book has piqued my interest in other Nature Company Guide books. This particular book offers beautiful photography, thought-provoking bits of trivia related to geological phenomena throughout history. Compared to a DK Guide on fossils, this book is more narrative in tone, and more conceptual in its presentation.

As a former Nature Company employee, I loved their books and wished I had purchased them then...

This is a great book for kids. I bought it for my son 20 years ago and also bought it for my grandson.

The book far exceeds the usual measure of information in general books of this type. It manages to cover a wide range of topics relating to earth science, fossils and fossil sites, types and modes of preservation, life from pre-Cambrian to recent times, soils, mineral formation, gems, volcanoes, continental drift, plant fossilization, tar pit sites, amber, insects, microfossils, vertebrates, invertebrates and more. It includes hundreds of illustrations mostly in color. Even a person relatively knowledgeable in geology or paleontology will find many new facts that they were unaware of previously. For instance, that the northern hemisphere soils are more fertile than southern hemisphere soils due to the recent repeated glaciations in the north. This created a wealth of finely ground mineral powder in the soils, absent in the south, which the book says has the depleted rain washed soils of Pangea, never glaciated for over 150 million years. The cycad fossil an Etruscan king was buried with, the fossil dinosaur stampede trackway at Lark Quarry in Queensland, or Tribrachidium, a pre-Cambrian animal that, unlike any animal since, had tri-fold symmetry. The book is a great piece of work by the numerous authors and editors who put it together.

This is the first Nature Company Guide I've ever read. I had always thought DK Guides were the very best. This book has piqued my interest in other Nature Company Guide books. This particular book offers beautiful photography, thought-provoking bits of trivia related to geological phenomena throughout history. Compared to a DK Guide on fossils, this book is more narrative in tone, and more conceptual in its presentation. Very nicely done.
