Remarkable Creatures Epic Adventures in the Search for the Origin of Species

Hardcover, Boston: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2009. Second Printing. Fine in Fine dust jacket. "Just 150 years ago, most of our world was an unexplored wilderness. Our sense of its age was vastly off the mark. And what we believed to be the history of our own species consisted of fantastic myths and fairy tales; fossils, known for millennia, were seen as the bones of dragons and other imagined creatures. How did we learn so much so quickly? Remarkable Creatures celebrates the pioneers who replaced our fancies with the even more remarkable real story of how our world evolved."
